End of course conclusion

We very much hope that you have enjoyed your studies on this course. As you may have gathered from your studies, the course authors think that law making is a fascinating and important subject which underpins all aspects of our daily lives. An understanding of law making can give us a fresh insight into the society in which we live. It also highlights the important role of MSPs and MPs. Law has an important function in assisting a society to grow and develop because the culture of any society is reflected in its legal system. We hope that through your studies on this course you have been able to recognise some of these aspects in the work of the Scottish Parliament. We also hope that your studies have given you a new viewpoint on, and a fresh insight into, the Scottish Parliament and the importance of its role in contemporary Scotland.
