Natural Law, National Laws, Parliaments and Multiple Monarchies: 1707 and Beyond

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review

Abstract / Description of output

In contrast to Denmark, Scotland was the junior partner in the British state. Yet politics and circumstances allowed preservation of a legal system, different from England because of the role of Roman law, in contrast to Denmark which emphasised a uniquely Danish law. Throughout the eighteenth century, Scotland maintained a significant measure of independence within Britain.
