""Professor Walker's Legal History of Scotland is 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. This seventh and final volume brings the reader up to the end of the twentieth century and is a unique work, leaving no gaps in its coverage of the subject material. Professor Walker continues in the style of the previous volumes by covering every conceivable area of law and tracing its development through the century. Arguably, the twentieth century has seen the most rapid changes in society and everyday life and the legal system has reflected this. Topics covered include the Scottish Parliament, the emergence of human rights and the influence of the EU.""
