New look front page launched for Scottish Law Online at www.scottishlaw.org.uk.
I had to move the site off Crosswinds as it was more trouble than it
was worth. I moved it onto Geocities as I have now fixed the problems
which meant it couldn't be there in the first place. One day, I may
actually pay some money and move it to something quicker, perhaps
This page added to keep users uptodate with changes, additions and
alterations to the sites.
Revamped main entry page at Scottish Law Online and fixed many of the
error messages. Tried to clarify what was going on on the front page by
splitting the sites up into different sites. Also began to create the
Scottish Law Firm Directory and develop Law Search. The main entry page
as it was in 2000 is reproduced here.
Perhaps most importantly, this page had a java applet at the top which
showed a picture which rippled as you put your mouse over it. This is
also reproduced here
and another picture is here.
The applet was from Durius.
Launched the Scots Law Student Zone at http://www.geocities.com/scotslawstudent.
The site contains links to relevant sites for law students, guides to
getting work experience and/or a legal traineeship with a Scottish law
firm as well as the Scots Law Student Journal, the first ever web
journal in Scotland. You can see what the front page of the Scots Law
Student Zone used to look like by clicking here. You can
also see what the Journal looked like when it first began by clicking here.
Added links to the Faculty of Advocates, Scottish Law Commission which
have both recently joined the online law community. Also changed the
link to Royal Faculty of Procurators who have moved to a new address.
These links are in Organisations

Journal of the Law Society of Scotland prints a review of SLORC and
awards it 5/5 stars for all areas bar the frequency of being updated.
In fact, the site is updated on an almost daily basis and the only
thing which is rarely updated is the little piece of text on the About
and Main pages which tells you when it was last updated. Action taken -
removed all references to when the site was last updated.
Created An A to Z of the Law of Scotland, a revamp of the "Individual
Subjects" section of the website which I had been promising to update
for about 6 months.
February and March 2000 Redesigned SLORC
after I got sick of the colours.
SCL Conference on Making New Law in Scotland in Edinburgh. Instead of
