Brian Inkster acted for the pursuers in Moncrieff -v- Jamieson which has been described by Professor Roddy Paisley as “one of the most important cases on servitudes in the last 100 years”. Professors Kenneth Reid & George Gretton of Edinburgh University stated that the House of Lords decision “provides a remarkable end to a remarkable litigation”. Brian Inkster has given talks on this case for the Universities of Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Strathclyde. Brian was a lecturer on the general law of servitudes (in England and some other jurisdictions referred to as “easements”) for three years at the University of Strathclyde Law School where he also set and marked LL.B. exam questions on the topic.
