NEWSLETTER AUGUST 2015

Our last newsletter found us halfway through the summer; this one finds us already halfway through the festival! Our location on Candlemaker Row gives us ample opportunity to witness the weird and wonderful goings-on; perhaps next year, we should put out chairs and charge a viewing fee! The summer seems to be flying past, and September is almost upon us. We haven’t seen a great deal of publisher activity so far this August, but would still like to highlight some interesting new books / editions.

Although it may be hard to believe, the time has come for the 2015 set of Parliament House Book offprints! Greens Sheriff Court Rules 2015-2016 and Greens Annotated Rules of the Court of Session 2015-2016 are due at the end of the month, and Greens Solicitors Professional Handbook 2015-2016 has just been published. Shortly thereafter, Greens will be publishing the annual annotated Criminal Procedure (Scotland) Act 1995, which has now reached its 14th edition.

In addition to these new editions from Greens, Facts and Figures 2015-2016 is now available from Sweet & Maxwell. In early September, Oxford University Press will publish the Judicial College (JSB) Guidelines for the Assessment of General Damages in Personal Injury Cases (13ed), following a two-year gap since the last edition.

There are also some new editions of academic titles from Greens. Consumer Law in Scotland (5ed), Business Law in Scotland (3ed), Contract: Cases and Materials (3ed) and International Private Law: A Scots Perspective (4ed) have all been fully updated to take account of recent cases and developments in their respective fields. Contract is scheduled for September and the other three are publishing this month, giving students plenty of time to stock up before term begins! Speaking of students: we will shortly be announcing the details of our annual student prize draw. Watch this space for further information!

Edinburgh Legal Education Trust have just added a new title to their Studies in Scots Law series. Possession of Corporeal Moveables contains a general discussion of the requirements of possession in Scots Law, and also provides comparative material and the historical background to the modern law.

Back in April, we announced the imminent publication of Greens' Scottish Taxes Yearbook 2015. As it happens, publication turned out to be a little less imminent than we believed! However, we now understand that the book will be published at the end of this month.

Oxford University Press have just published a new edition of International Succession. The fourth edition now covers 53 jurisdictions (including Scotland), and also considers the law at regional level in the European Union.

Lastly, don’t forget that Leases has just been published! We have plenty of copies in stock, so get in touch if you would like to order one.

You can explore the sections below for more information about recently published or forthcoming titles. As always, we are happy to accept advance orders for forthcoming titles, and offer free delivery within the UK. If you would like us to notify you upon publication of a particular title, please get in touch with your contact details.
