No English QC's Allowed In Scots Court

I just wonder how Hoekstra managed to get Dutch Counsel to represent them.

I am also a tad confused as McKenzie friends are allowed to advise appellants without any insurance and indeed possibly without any legal qualifications.

Worthy of Note:

Lord Carloway sat in Hoekstra and now sits in judgement of this case but rejects it now.

In Hoekstra Dutch Counsel represented the Appellants but now English are Banned.

I have not seen any evidence Counsel in Hoekstra were forced to join the Scottish Bar before being allowed to defend them.

Seems to me Lord Carloway is showing definite signs of Bias towards English considering his recent outbursts about the UKSC undermining Scots Law. Forum Index -> Test Forum 1
