IP issues in Scotland

According to the Herald, in England and Wales, the government started permitting people other than barristers to represent clients in IP cases in the mid 1990s, breaking the closed shop.

However, the pertinent sections were never acted upon in Scotland.

David Moreland suggests that a consequence of this is that only the important IP cases are heard in Scotland.
