Norrie, Kenneth (2006) Clean break under attack. Journal of the Law Society of Scotland, 51 (7). pp. 16-18. ISSN 0458-8711Full text not available in this repository.
Discusses the comments made by the Scottish judge on the House of Lords Appellate Committee, Lord Hope of Craighead, in the judgment in Miller v Miller, an English ancillary relief claim, that the Scottish clean break principle provided by the Family Law (Scotland) Act 1985 s.9(1) is unfair to spouses experiencing a significant drop in their standard of living and should offer the flexibility available to the English courts. Considers the validity of Lord Hope's criticisms.
