Human Rights and Scots Law

Edited by: Chris Himsworth, Hector MacQueen, Alan Boyle, Andrea Loux

In June 1998, the Faculty of Law of the University of Edinburgh held a conference of academics, judges and distinguished practitioners from the UK and abroad to discuss the implications of the incorporation of the ECHR into Scots law. The contributors to this book consider the impact of the Human Rights Act in light of the new constitutional settlement for Scotland and their experiences of other rights regimes in Europe, the Commonwealth, and the United States. Topics included are an analysis of the Human Rights Act and Scotland Act; human rights and the law of crime, property, employment, family and private life; Scottish court practice and procedure; Scots law and the European dimension; and building a rights culture in Scotland.
