In addition to other awards, the Foundation supported a number of students both at undergraduate level (LLB, DIPLP) and at postgraduate level (LLM, PhD) to enable them to study and research Scots law.

At Masters/PhD level, research topics supported by the Foundation during the year included:-

  • “Contrasting the approach of Scots Law to sexual offences with other jurisdictions and evaluating whether the approach can be improved”;
  • “E-Commerce and distribution agreements under EU Competition Law”;
  • “Advancing the understanding of online sexual extortion in Scotland”;
  • “Investigating issues surrounding the use of neuroscientific evidence by the defence in criminal cases in Scotland”.
