Roman Law in Britain

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The paper discusses, first, how classical Roman law can become highly suffused through exposure to a more unusual influence: English law; second, how it has nevertheless proved, on occasion, to be inspirational for English law; and third, why the fact of that influence has sometimes had to be suppressed. The bridge between Roman law and English law is provided by Scotland.
