The

Nobile Officium of the Court of Session and the High Court of Justiciary

is an ancient but elusive concept. The equitable jurisdiction of the Supreme Courts of Scotland continues to be relevant and useful today but its scope and limitations are poorly understood.

This is the first book to systematically examine the Nobile Officium. Placing it in its historical and conceptual context, the book explores the development and application of the Nobile Officium in such diverse areas as:-

  • Trusts
  • Judicial factors, curators, tutors and guardians
  • Bankruptcy, insolvency and sequestration
  • Custody of children
  • Public officers
  • Statutory omissions
  • civil procedure
  • Criminal law and procedure
This ambitious text provides original and informative commentary and analysis for practitioners, teachers and students of Scots law.
