Roman Law in Britain
MetadataShow full item record
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.
