New Jobsboard for The Journal07/2017
Magazine of The Law Society of Scotland, The Journal, announces this week’s launch of new look recruitment site
Scots Law is one of the three legal jurisdictions of the United Kingdom, the others being English Law and Northern Ireland Law. It has always been that little bit different to the rest of the UK. Although it has incorporated various influences it has different roots to that practiced South of the border. You could say Scotland keeps its own counsel.
Before the 12th Century the law consisted of the legal traditions of the various ethnic groups to be found in what was yet to become the Kingdom of Scotland: Gaels in the North, Britons and Anglo Saxons in the South and the Norse in the West. Following its unification under the Scottish Crown feudalism was introduced. While various influences were felt from Anglo-Norman and continental legal systems, the incorporation of certain Roman law practices being an important aspect from the 15th Century onwards, Scotland has retained its original traditions throughout the eons; even after the Act of Union in 1707.
Continuing and upholding those traditions and practices is the Law Society of Scotland. Established in 1949, it is the professional body for over 11,000 Scottish solicitors. The Law Society’s magazine, The Journal, is the most widely-read legal periodical in Scotland and its jobsboard, Lawscot Jobs, is the most visited recruitment site for Scottish lawyers online. This week sees the launch of the latest and greatest version of this popular jobs site.
