In The Case Files we look back at notable court cases over the last 150 years - and discover how Brodies lawyers through the ages have played their part in key legal moments over that time.

In each episode, we talk to Brodies' modern-day legal experts to discover how their predecessors helped shape the way the law is applied today.

In this second episode, host David Lee is joined by partner Tony Jones KC and associate Ross Mitchell, both Solicitor Advocates, as they head back 100 years to the early 1920s to discuss Maclaine vs Gatty, a case linking together military service in the First World War, a Scottish island estate, and unpaid debts which has implications across British law and still influences a principle of law that applies today.
