Spent two days at the invitation of Alan Paterson (Strathclyde) and Richard Susskind discussing legal practice and legal education at Ross Priory, Strathclyde's retreat house on Loch Lomond, which has one of the best views anywhere in Scotland. Great hospitality, great talk and insight. This year Richard had invited Mari Sako, Professor of Management Studies at the Said Business School, Oxford, who gave us an economist's view of legal practice. Other fascinating presentations included Alan himself, summarizing his recent Hamlyn lectures (out soon, published by Cambridge UP) and Orlando Conetta on his work with TermFrame. From what I saw of it, Orlando's app could also be used to help students learn legal practice logic -- need to think more about that. Also met up with Strath staff, which was great -- Leo Martin, Charles Hennessy, Karen Barton. Lots of publication talk, planning, etc. But as always, the place itself was the star turn, in any weather.
