    Abstract

    Considers the extent to which it may be claimed that the Defamation and Malicious Publications (Scotland) Bill is - adopting the language of Professor Alan Watson - a 'failure of the legal imagination' which, if enacted, will unduly and uncritically Anglicise the Scots law of Defamation and Verbal Injury.
