The Law of Diligence: "all changed, changed utterly"
Date 2 June 2011
Speaker Professor Gerry Maher (University of Edinburgh)
Seminar Details The Bankruptcy and Diligence etc (Scotland) Act 2007 is the most comprehensive reform of the law of diligence ever. It introduced 3 new diligences (land attachment, residual attachment, and attachment of money) and made significant reforms to the existing diligences of inhibition, diligence on the dependence, attachment of moveables, and arrestment in execution. The aim of this presentation is to give a broad overview of the 2007 Act, to examine the operation of the provisions which have been brought into force, and to consider the likely implementation of the remaining parts of the Act.
Gerry Maher studied law at Glasgow and Oxford. He has held academic posts at the Universities of Glasgow and Strathclyde, where he was a professor from 1992 until 2000. He currently holds a Chair as Professor of Criminal Law at Edinburgh University. He was admitted to the Faculty of Advocates in 1987 and was a practising advocate from 1989 to 1992. He was appointed as a Queen’s Counsel in 2003. From 2000 to 2009 he was a full-time Scottish Law Commissioner. One of the Commission projects in which he was involved was the reform of the law of diligence. His research interests include criminal law, international private law, and the diligence.
