Disclosure in Scottish criminal procedure: another step in an inquisitorial direction?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article describes the recent development of a common law doctrine of disclosure in Scottish criminal procedure when, as little as 10 years ago, the prosecution had no legal duty to disclose any information to the defence prior to trial. Further, it is argued that this transformation has the potential to move the Scottish criminal justice system further from its adversarial base towards a more inquisitorial model.
