Caroline Gillespie, Partner and Head of Family Law at BLM has discussed the proposed additional powers to tackle domestic abuse in today's The Scotsman.
The Domestic Abuse (Protection) (Scotland) Bill, presently under consideration at the Scottish Parliament, aims to provide immediate protection for people experiencing domestic abuse through the introduction of domestic abuse protection notices and orders (DAPNs and DAPOs).
Caroline said, “Regardless of whether the bill becomes law in the form as presently proposed, the subject of domestic abuse is likely to remain high on the political and legal agenda in the coming year and beyond.”
