Editors’ Comment for Volume IV, Issue 1
This year, the DSLR have been very ambitious in what it wants to achieve. We
have decided to try and produce two issues this year for Volume IV, whereby this
is the first onethe Winter Edition! Additionally, alongside our main prize from
Anderson Strathern, we have introduced a 1st Year Prize, the Sam Morton Prize,
whereby the best 1st Year submission shall win a cash prize.
Along with these ambitions, we have wanted to maintain the excellent efforts of
our predecessors and get as many excellent articles as possible. We have had more
submissions than we could have dreamed of for the Winter Edition, with
submissions from across the UK, and even from various countries around the
world- we really want to thank everyone who sent in submissions for this issue!
Since we are splitting our publication into two issues this year, we also have
slightly reduced the number of articles in all, but the quality is as high as ever. We
start with an excellent article concerning Stop and Search Powers in Scotland.
Then there is an excellent analysis of Income Tax Contributions for the Self-
Employed in light of recent changes. Our final article goes analyses public
participation in the EIA process, highlighting not only the benefits, but also the
barriers which prevent the public from being able to effectively contribute.
We hope you enjoy this issue, and the Volume as a whole, and we hope you look
out for the next issue when it arrives in the summer!
