The Scottish Legal System sets out to present the legal system and law of Scotland as a unique and constantly changing human enterprise' and places the Scottish legal system in its broader political and social contexts. This is achieved by covering not only the central aspects of the system, such as the courts and the legal profession, but also the border areas with constitutional law and jurisprudence. This well established text provides an up-to-date treatment of all significant developments affecting the Scottish legal system.
