This is a signpost blog, to highlight a forthcoming event about [Scots] property law. The event is taking place on 20-21 May 2016 in Belfast and the Scottish element is detailed in this blog by Dr. Jill Robbie of the University of Glasgow. The ALPS page for the event is here.
No prizes for guessing what I will be speaking about. With great originality, I will be addressing land reform and specifically the statutory regimes around community ownership, drawing on a presentation I gave in Scotland last June to a non-legal audience (that June event being digested here). In comparison with that event, I will need to: a) increase the law/theory content; and b) assume less background knowledge in the audience about what has been happening on the ground in Scotland.
Five other speakers will also be trying to shine a light on what exactly is happening to the regulation of property in Scots law, in a way that will hopefully be useful to an international audience. Hopefully that audience will also provide some useful insight of their own, which the Scottish-based contributors will then be able to take back across the Irish Sea after the event.
A blog about this event may well follow, so watch this space.
