On 22 January, at a lecture at Glasgow University, Ambassador David Scheffer, Mayer Brown/Robert A. Helman Professor in Law gave an enlightened picture of Scotland's path as a sovereign state. Scotland as a sovereign state, which went into partnership with a larger domineering neighbour, but is now on the path to resuming its position as a sovereign state. James Trolland, SDA deputy chair attended and can advise that the lecture content confirms the long stated position of the SDA on self-determination for Scotland.
