Scottish Criminal Justice System

The Scottish Criminal Justice System has developed separately and distinctly over many centuries from the English System. Scotland has now its own devolved Parliament but long before that came into existence there were significant differences in the Scottish approach. Accordingly a significant amount of law applicable in England is of no relevance at all in Scotland and the approach to the rules of evidence, corroboration, police powers of search, arrest and detention are in the main unique.
