Lawyers' Edinburgh, 1800-2000



'Lawyers' Edinburgh 1800-2000' is a beginning on the history of leading Edinburgh law firms from 1800-2000, intended to show their long existence, their location in the New Town until very recently, and the identities of their partners.

The database, which also includes images of locations, is the result of a pilot study by Hector MacQueen and Ashley Theunissen (Edinburgh University), funded by the University’s Development Trust Research Fund. The database has been designed so that it can be extended in its coverage of time, space and persons.
