Scotland to woo the world with glossy marketing move

SCOTTISH lawyers have stolen a march on their English and Welsh rivals by producing a glossy brochure designed to drum up work from foreign businesses at the American Bar Association Conference, which will be held next month.

The Faculty of Advocates and the Law Society of Scotland joined forces to publish the 12-page brochure, called Scotland: Your Legal Route into Europe.

It will be on display at the ABA conference in Orlando in August and later the same month at the Commonwealth Law Conference, to be held in Vancouver, Canada.

The Law Society of England and Wales already has its own brochure, but it has not produced an updated version especially for the conference.
