Comments...I am not a big fan of the new design here, which is a bit difficult to navigate and uses unusual colours but the information available on the site is excellent. There are a number of extensive guides to Scottish conveyancing procedure. There are quite a number of additional site features. There is a searchable database, and a listing of the properties with small pictures which if clicked leads to more pictures and a larger description. Many of these additional pictures did not work when I tried the site though. The information on the staff and partners is very detailed and it even contains a picture and statement by each.

The Tours are also published along with a much more detailed commentary in the Internet Newsletter for Lawyers which has been awarded Best Legal Journal for 2001 by the British and Irish Association of Law Librarians (BIALL). The newsletter features articles and stories from lawyers in the UK on topical issues affecting the legal internet and the information technology world. To find out how to subscribe, click here.
