Ward blawG

Practice/Organization Description

Borne of the Legal Eagle Nebula, now domiciled in the Blawgosphere, WardblawG is a law blog or “blawg” showcasing and contributing to Scots law and Scottish business, for Scottish and indeed worldwide business.

A trainee solicitor at a Scottish law firm, based in Edinburgh, former Citizens Advice Bureau adviser, former tutor at the University of Glasgow and published in the Juridical Review under editors Professors Gerard Maher and Elizabeth Crawford, I have created this blawg to aim to contribute updates, thoughts and general advice to businesses and the legal profession, both in Scotland and, by virtue of the Internet, further afield.

Avoiding anonymity, this blawg is designed to provide its audience with unambivalent, stellar content from the best young minds in the Scottish legal profession, while also providing the most recent news relevant to Scots lawyers and businesses both those domiciled in Scotland and those established elsewhere looking to set up or develop their business in Scotland.
