This month we cover issues including, Brexit preparations for a no-deal exit, information law and new technologies, data protection, and financial services and banking employment issues.

The Inner House of the Court of Session has ruled that the Prime Minister’s advice to HM the Queen, to prorogue Parliament for five weeks, was unlawful, as it was deemed to be motivated by stymying Parliament. The court made an order declaring that the advice to the Queen and subsequent prorogation was null and void, due to the unlawfulness of the advice.
