Publication of Scottish Legal History Volume One: 1000-1707

Dr Andrew Simpson and Dr Adelyn Wilson are delighted to announce the publication of their book, Scottish Legal History Volume One: 1000-1707. It is the first single-volume study of that entire period of Scottish legal history to be published in over fifty years. The work considers how and why a Scottish common law came into being in the twelfth century. It then examines how it was used in dispute resolution during the medieval and early modern periods. At the same time, it charts how the authority of Scots law developed over the centuries, laying the foundations of the modern legal system.

The main aim of the book is to provide students and others interested in the discipline with an accessible introduction to the subject. In addition, the authors hope that both the volume's synthesis of existing scholarship and also its original contributions to research will be of interest to scholars who are already well-versed in the field.
