Our monthly newsletter looks at the relevant stories of the moment, allowing WJM’s team of experts to give their professional opinions on a variety of topical subjects.

This month, WJM’s Nicola Martin talks about a new Scottish Government consultation that could lead to changes in what we’re allowed to build and use land for, and clarifies why we have planning laws in Scotland.

On 30th November, 2016, the Bankruptcy Scotland Act came into force. Steven Docherty looks at the impact of the recent changes to bankruptcy laws here in Scotland, and explains exactly what bankruptcy is and how the process works.

There is also a special feature on the Family Law department here at WJM as we talk with our Family Law expert Tom Quail, looking at the way the law interacts with the family unit and detailing the different types of relationships recognised in law.

Finally, Colin Millar looks at the Scottish Whisky Association who has been given permission to go to the UK’s highest court with an appeal against a minimum price for alcohol here in Scotland.
