About Legal History of Scotland Volume III

Professor Walker's Legal History of Scotland will be published in seven volumes. It is the only attempt yet made to write a chronological narrative account of the development of the Scottish legal system from early times on a substantial scale, with extensive reference to original sources. That development is wholly different from that of the English legal system. Attention is given at all stages to sources and legal literature, the influences of other legal systems, the courts and procedure, the lawyers, the roles of Parliament and the Privy Council, and to public, criminal and private law, both substantive and procedural.The third volume deals with the legal history of Scotland from 1488 to 1603. This period includes two major events, the institution of the College of Justice and the religious Reformation, both of which initiated developments of great and continuing significance.
