A New Perspective of Scottish Legal History, volume one


First Edition

Andrew Simpson and Adelyn Wilson

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • The first textbook on Scottish legal history from the genesis of Scots law to the Union, written from a legal perspective
  • The chapters have been road-tested with legal history students in the School of Law at the University of Aberdeen
  • The textbook has been developed with input from legal history lecturers at a number of Scottish universities
  • Complex and dry legal history is presented through examples and anecdotes, to help students to engage with and understand the material
  • Material is divided into easily digested chunks, arranged from the perspective of legal history (rather than political, social or economic history)
