Description

PART 1 - It’s About Time

The Prescription (Scotland) Act 2018 reforms the landscape for prescription (limitation) periods for obligations to pay damages in Scotland. The 5 year and 20 year time bar dates are amended in certain circumstances (mostly related to latent damage).

This seminar will:

  • look at the case law which led to the change
  • examine what triggers the start of the time bar periods and the core deadlines under the new rules; and
  • consider the differences between Scottish and English law.

PART 2 - Understanding Scottish Prescription and Limitation Law in Personal Injury Claims

We will discuss how different rules apply north of the border on all types of personal injury claims including disease and child abuse, and current proposals for reform.

Description

It is not often that changes in the law generate such publicity. This time last year GDPR occupied many air hours and column inches, but was all the hype justified?


This seminar will compare the headlines with the reality and look at the developments that have taken place since the GDPR came into effect.


BTO’s Data Protection Team will look at the guidance that has been introduced; fines which have been imposed; and consider the UK’s relationship with the rest of Europe and how this affects use of personal data.


We will also consider further changes on the horizon in data protection law and look ahead to new rules on direct marketing.
