Legal Liability

Nothing whatsoever on any of the sites which I maintain is intended to be construed as legal advice. Users are not expected to and should not rely on any of the information found on the sites without first seeking legal advice from a qualified Scottish solicitor or by conducting their own research. To aid this, no legal advice is offered at any time on the site.

It is expected and anticipated that the Users of the internet are reasonably familiar with the way in which it works and are able to realise that when they click on a link, they are taken to a completely different site.

I do not accept liability for the content or actions of any site which I link to.

Linking Policy

Please feel free to add a link to the Scottish Law Online front page at and to any of the other index.html pages. You do not need to notify me when a link is added but it is nice to know when this happens as I may which to reciprocate. If you do add a link then please refer to the site as "Scottish Law Online".

If you do not wish Scottish Law Online to link to your site then remove your site from the internet and communicate by using more traditional forms of media.

Deep Linking Policy

The present legal position on this is hazy to say the least. The position maintained by this website is not. Feel free to link to any page that you wish to on Scottish Law Online provided that you make it clear that you are linking to a page on Scottish Law Online.

If you are concerned that I have deep linked to a page on your site without your permission then contact me and I will add appropriate comments alongside the link to indicate this. If you wish to stop deep linking by this site then use appropriate html or javascript code on your own site. Links on this site will not be removed.

To prevent Deep Linking, I recommend using the following JavaScripts on the affected pages: Script 1 Script 2 You will find that these scripts are a lot cheaper and more practical than court action.
