Bachelor (of Laws). Scots academic lawyer (on the roll of solicitors in Scotland and also England and Wales, but not currently holding a practising certificate in either jurisdiction). Took far too long to write this bio. Blogs on legal issues and might veer into other purportedly intellectual stuff from time to time, for reasons more fully explained here. Tweets primarily about legal issues, with an occasional nod to education, fitba, music and other stuff, here: @MalcolmCombe.
This blog is personal and does not reflect the views of my employer, whoever that might happen to be. That said, I sincerely hope that nothing controversial will be present on this blog and my employer would be happy enough with my personal views, so please keep that in mind before clyping on me about anything on this blog. The views of any commenters are personal to commenters and are not necessarily endorsed by the author of the blog. Inflammatory comments may not be approved, but be assured that relatively mild moderation policy does not prevent you from setting up your own blog should you be so moved to publish anything that I do not.
Anyone wishing to heckle me on an ad hominem basis is directed to an earlier blog.
