Four Seasons Glas. Winter Seminar, Court Reforms (WAITLIST ONLY)

AM Advocates are delighted to announce the first instalment in their new series of quarterly CPD Seminars – The Four Seasons. The opening “Winter” edition of the series will be of interest to solicitors of all types but particularly court practitioners. So why not leave the cold weather outside and listen to three knowledgeable and experienced stable members address the hot topic of the Courts Reform (Scotland) Act and its practical implications.

The Seminar will qualify for 1.5 hours of CPD and will be presented in both Edinburgh and Glasgow.

These events are free but places are limited. We anticipate high demand so to ensure your attendance you are required to book a place, taking care to register for the correct venue.

Scott Manson, Advocate – “New rules with new tools – The Court of Session comes to town” Scott will examine, from both a substantive and practical perspective, some of the new remedies and procedures which will soon be available to civil practitioners in the Sheriff Court for the first time.

Timothy Young, Advocate – “Snakes and Ladders: Moving between the new Court structures” Tim will discuss the significant changes to the way in which actions can, and will, move between different levels of the new Court Structure under the 2014 Act, including a review of the new ‘Second Appeals Test’, a review of the new rules on remitting cases, and a discussion of the implication of these changes for the conduct of litigation in Scotland more generally.

Jonathan Brodie QC – “An Action fit for the 21st Century” With the Courts Reform (Scotland) Act 2014 nearly upon us, Jonathan will provide an overview of some of the principal changes to be introduced and how they will affect the choice, shape and conduct of litigation in the Sheriff Court and Court of Session.
