More recently, Greens have published Contract: Cases and Materials (3ed), providing a fully updated reference work on Scots contract law. In January, we are looking forward to a new edition of the popular Commercial Leases in Scotland: A Practitioner’s Guide (3ed). The book is a complete source of both information and expert advice, and contains statutes, cases and a glossary of Scottish commercial leasing terms.

LexisNexis have produced a new title on environmental law; Convenient Action: Continuity for Change. The book is written by Mr Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India, and was recently launched by French President Francois Hollande at the 2015 Paris Climate Conference. The book gives a snapshot of all the latest developments in India relating to climate change, including a brief on India’s Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs). This book also connects with international community and provides a great deal of inspiration to various cross sections of the society to join in the global drive to deal with the challenges of climate change. LexisNexis have also just published the Words and Phrases Legally Defined 2015 Supplement.

Edinburgh Legal Education Trust has just added a new title to their Studies in Scots Law series. Private Water Rights is the first book to be published on the law of water in Scotland for more than 100 years. The book examines the history of water law, and provides an analysis of the modern law with comparative references to other legal systems.
