vastly improved. Also added Shockwave
flash movies under recreation, increased and redesigned the Shopping area and
really focussed on the additional recreation areas.
Continued updating pages and publicising these efforts. Realise though
that this page is less frequently updated than it should be. Hope to
New look front page and new background introduced. Regular users will
have noticed that there has always been a bias towards those using
screen settings of 1024 x 768. Users who have 800 x 600 therefore see
distorted links, etc. Some of the new changes are deliberately designed
to combat this problem. If you want something to change then tell me.
The new changes today took exactly 8 hours work for the ENTIRE site
(6pm to 2am). I missed the Simpsons for this! (I have them all on video
anyway!) If you spot a problem - tell me.
BOARD AND CHAT ROOM
on the site. These both had to be changed due to the fact that the
previous versions were not very good at all. Please use both these
features as much as you want. Lawyers, please feel free to help
individuals in crisis by clicking on the Legal Advice section and
answeing their queries. Initially the Bulletin board contained adverts
but after three days I got sick of these and paid to have them removed.
Don't be mislead by its name. I tis actually a hi-tech online
discussion forum on which you can post polls, have discussions, etc
anonymously or with a username if you wish to access the additional
Added the Online Legal Intranet to Scottish Law Online. New area
featuring tools and links for lawyers to use everyday. Ifyou can think
of any more links or even areas of links that need to be covered then
do let me know. Many thanks to Bruce de Wert of D W Georgeson &
Son for supplying several of the links. I did add the Mystery
Tours mentioned below to this section afterall.
Scottish Law Online is now available in eight different languages:
Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Spanish and
English! I didn't sit and translate the site, incase you wondered. I
used an excellent tool on the web which you too can access on the
August 2001 Rather
than rewriting this news, I will simply quote it from an e-mail I
recently received from Delia
Venables. " I would just like to tell you that the
next issue of the Newsletter
will contain an article by young Scottish lawyer Kevin Crombie, who
runs the excellent Scottish Law Online site at
http://www.scottishlaw.org.uk. The article will be on the best property
sites created by Scottish firms of solicitors. Following that, in the
November/December issue, he and I will be writing jointly on the best
Scottish firms' web sites, with an associated Mystery Tour. "
I may (haven't decided yet) add the mystery tours
to this site too so stay tuned!
August 2001 New feature to be added soon: If you find that
you use a particular site a lot, e-mail me and I will add it to
Scottish Law Online (regardless of what it is). Law Firms - add a link
to your intranet on Scottish Law Online (and vice versa) so that your
staff can access both quickly. New features to be added later: Custom
front page. No idea how I'm going to do this but it is an ultimate
goal. If anyone has any idea how to then please tell me. (Probably
involves cookies, doesn't it?)
August 2001 Regular visitors will
notice the changes that I have been working on all summer. I need to
have feedback on the new layout so please use the FEEDBACK form and be as
brutal as you like. Instead of What's New? the question really is,
What's Old? The only part to remain unchanged is Search Law's list of
search engines and this will be updated soon. Further, the new issue of
the Scots Law Student Journal will soon be available. ...a new day, a
new dawn... indeed! You can see how the site looked on August 2nd 2001

July 29th 2001 New site uploaded. The
End of the Scots Law Online Resource Centre (SLORC). (Sorry!).
Older versions of the site have been indexed by Archive.org and
accessed by clicking this link.
July 2001 Bought Statistics and will
keep users informed of the number of visits through the ABOUT page.
June 2001 In Brazil so can't reply to
e-mails for a while, sorry.
May 2001 Changed the background colour
of A to Z after several users complained that it was impossible to read
on their screens. Sorry to all others who had this problem.
The April version, the new version in May and all subsequent
versions of the A to Z have been indexed by Archive.org and can be
accessed by clicking this link.
April 2001 Finally finished the Scottish Law Firm Directory
which includes law firms, Sheriff Courts, Sheriff Officers and more
recently, Advocates. I will at some point be accepting adverts on this
particular site which is the largest of its kind anywhere at present.
Still updating An A to Z as the legal web continues to grow.
Reorganised the Family Law section – now much easier to use!
for the front entry page. Intend to use them later for new projects. In
the meantime they will point to Scottish Law Online.
Still updating and preparing pages. Have added Agricultural Law and
also Animal Rights to A2Z. Still working on the Scottish Law Firm
Directory and at the same time doing a new page on Power of Attorney to
take account of the changes. Also doing a page on legal forms online
and other legal documents presently available. Thinking about doing a
separate page on SLORC for Publishers and the services which they offer
The whole of Scottish Law Online is now on the new server, including An
A to Z of the Law of Scotland. The sites are now a lot faster.
Feb 15th at 11.59
Have now moved the entire of SLORC across to the new server. There is a
significant increase in speed so I am happy! Only have A2Z to do next,
which is about 70 files! Should take a couple of weeks 9-5 so stay
Changing sites still. Have moved all but files on A2Z and entire of
SLORC. New addresses are: http://www.scottishlaw.org.uk/lawfirms,
The old addresses will still work and will simply redirect you to the
new ones but it will be a lot faster if you use the new ones.
Bought web space on UK2.net. Beginning the process of moving sites
across – should make them a lot faster! Also renamed Law
Search to Search Law – Apparently, somebody has the copyright
on Law Search. To avoid this problem arising again, bought http://www.searchlaw.co.uk
Still doing Scottish Law Firm Directory and Scots Law Student Journal
– Sorry not ready yet. (Computer broke again!)
Came second in National competition to develop a web page on a chosen
legal topic. Chose “Mapping the Legal Web”. The
page can be viewed http://www.venables.co.uk/mysteries/student.htm
and a story in Business AM about the site can be seen at http://www.businessam.co.uk/BreakingNews/articles/0,2790,7515,00.html
Sorry, my Computer broke over Christmas. I am now about 2 months behind
with everything which I was doing before. Scottish Law Firm Directory
is behind schedule. The new edition of the Scots Law Student Journal
(SLSJ) is set to publish in February (4 monthly). I updated the Company
Law section on An A to Z of the Law of Scotland by utilising all of the
excellent improvements made on the Companies House site so at least I
was able to do something.
