Legislation is an important source of law within the Scottish legal system. Legislation is law made by – or under the authority of – a legislature (e.g. Parliament).

In this class we will look at how to find legislation. We will focus on using legal databases to do this.

After attending this class, you should:

  • Be able to state the main types of legislation affecting Scotland
  • Understand how a piece of legislation can be amended over time
  • Know where to find legislation online and in the Library
  • Know how to use legal databases to find legislation, and

This class is an introduction to the topic and is aimed at students and staff in all disciplines where legislation may be used as an information source.
