Scottish Legal History: Volume 1: 1000-1707 by Andrew R. C. Simpson
The roots of Scots law can be traced to the 1100s. How and why did that law come into being? How was it used in dispute resolution during the medieval and early modern periods? And how did its authority develop over the centuries? This volume explores such questions, introducing readers to the history of the Scottish legal system prior to the 1707 parliamentary union with England.
