Reply Link Anonymous 6 August 2012 at 15:32 “Low cost ” and “Scotland” are not words that sit well together in the same sentence. Reply Link Rab C Nesbitt 6 August 2012 at 16:29 Are there not significant differences between the two legal systems that will pose something of an obstacle to these plans?

NI law is much closer England’s and Northern Irish law students have to cover English law where it differs from NI law at university anyway. Also Northern Ireland is still significantly cheaper than Scotland. You can pick up an NQ in general practice for £15k and corporates weigh in at about 20-21 can’t say fairer than that.
