6a. Changes to the Scots Laws of Succession
Date:
Thursday 16 May 2019
Time:
05:45pm - 07:15pm
Speaker:
John Kerrigan (Partner, Morisons)
Seminar Details:

In June 2015, the Scottish Government issued its Consultation on the Laws of Succession. This indicated possible major changes to our Laws of Succession, particularly in relation to intestacy and protection from disinheritance (Legal Rights). On 18 October 2018, the Scottish Government published its comments on the responses to said Consultation. This Seminar will consider -
   • What changes the Scottish Government have indicated they will make – and why.
   • What changes (which might have been expected) are not now going to be made – and why.
   • What matters have been held over for further consideration/consultation.


John Kerrigan is one of Scotland’s foremost authorities on Succession. He is a member of the Law Society of Scotland Sub-Committee on Trusts and Succession. John is also the author of Drafting for Succession which is now in its second edition and compiled Greens’ styles of Powers of Attorney and Petitions for Financial Guardianship.
