Should a jury know what “balance of probabilities” means?scotslawstudent

Robertson v HMA was a criminal appeal in April following a conviction of having a knife in a public place without reasonable excuse or lawful authority which centred on the direction of juries. I think this case is a fantastic example of just saying too much to the police: [3] The appellant was detained by […]

I have been rightly guilted out of my quiet period by a reminder of the wider law blogging community from Law Actually for which I can only apologise and blame the Diploma. I’ve been letting this blog wither a little (even letting the domain lapse as I have finished the formal student part of my […]

If you’re a law student, lawyer or someone not in those groups who has read a case in the past 10 years, BAILII (British and Irish Legal Information Institute) needs no introduction. If you’re not though, BAILII is the charity law students, practitioners and lots of the general public rely on just about every day […]

It’s hard to overstate how important good information is in business and this applies equally to why Masters of the Universe are tempted to go in for insider trading as it does why we have Go Compare adverts. This is not here for its musical chops The competition for supermarkets in Britain is pretty limited […]

Soulver T&Csscotslawstudentsoulver

I am a big fan of a program called Soulver for Mac (I’ve never used it but Lifehacker says that OpalCalc is a good copy for Windows). Soulver is basically a notepad application that lets you write out what calculations you’re doing and then does the computation next to it. I like it because my fundamental failing in […]

On catgate and outrageousnessscotslawstudentGravity hill

The Guardian is making very ominous sounds about Ken Clarke’s future career in the wake of “catgate” which, if true, is possibly the saddest political coup in history. I suspect most people have heard about Catgate by now — one of Theresa May’s researchers has found a immigration case in which a cat was mentioned […]

I have waxed lyrical about my love for the Amazon Kindle before so I’m naturally interested in Amazon’s revamp. Regular readers will remember that my only complaints about the Kindle were its annotation features (particularly export) and the keyboard. Therefore, I’m quite happy to see what they’ve done now: Kindle Touch faster hardware slightly smaller […]

Campaign for Real Ale to not support lager?scotslawstudent

Sat, 01 Oct 2011 20:17:20 +0000

In a remarkable sign of how big it now is the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA), a group intended to support the once endangered breed of cask ales in Britain, is being pressured to support other kinds of beer. There was a Camden based brewer on Channel 4 news tonight rhetorically asking why they don’t […]

“The great irony is we don’t own the surface of the moon, so in a sense we don’t own the footprints” left by Apollo astronauts In developments rather outside of my jurisdiction, NASA is seeking consensus with private space exploration companies (this alone proves we are in the future) over guidelines to preserve the historical […]

In the shadow of the Neil Lennon look-we-have-a-video-it-happened-on-TV Not Proven verdict Scott Greenfield writes about a law review article across the pond about how the exclusionary rule — one of the central procedural concepts in all litigation that’s ever heard of England articulating the principle that, for various reasons, some evidence is simply too unfair […]
