""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.Volume I traces the development of Scots law up to 1286. The sources and literature, the procedure and principles are all covered in fascinating detail.Previously a T & T Clarke publication""
