I'm new to this, so be gentle. I couldn't find anything relating to, so thought I'd make a start. Let me know if this is how to proceed, or if there's a better format, and I can go through it more thoroughly. Disclaimer: I'm qualified with a degree in Scots Law (LLB. Hons.), about to embark on an LLM in Internet Law & Policy.
