The Scottish legal system is about to undergo the most significant changes in over 100 years. There have been a number of reviews looking at different aspects of the service and the recommendations have now been compiled into a consultation document.

It is particularly important for people in East Lothian to be aware of this consultation because one of the proposed changes is the closure of Haddington Sheriff Court. The business of the court would be moved to Edinburgh.

Full details about the consultation process, including the report itself and how to respond, can be found on the Scottish Courts website:
