The ownership of Scotland's foreshore has been a matter of a prolonged controversy. In the past, the debate centered on whether the shore was owned by the Crown or by adjacent proprietors and on how, and by whom, Crown-owned foreshore should be managed. Scotland's Foreshore tells the story of the battle that took place during the nineteenth century and into the early twentieth century between the Crown and private proprietors over the ownership of the foreshore. Drawing on his expert knowledge of law and its evolution, MacAskill provides new and valuable insights into the foreshore controversy and the contest between proprietors and the Crown and he discusses the important issues as to the management of the foreshore, issues that culminated in responsibility for the management of Scotland's Crown-owned foreshore being devolved to the Scottish Parliament at a time when the question of land ownership is central to Scottish political debate.

  • Introduction: Scottish lawyers in the Scottish enlightenment
  • An enlightened advocate's library
  • Two scholars : Areskine, Aikenhead, and their books
  • Scottish legal scholars abroad
  • A flourishing market for books
  • Advocates' books in early eighteenth-century Scotland
  • "Miscellaneous books" : Charles Areskine's polite learning
  • The Scottish gentleman's library
  • The fates of books : the Alva collections
  • Conclusion.
In Charles Areskine's Library, Karen Baston uses a detailed study of an eighteenth-century Scottish advocate's private book collection to explore key themes in the Scottish Enlightenment including secularisation, modernisation, internationalisation, and the development of legal literature in Scotland. By exploring a surviving manuscript dated 1731that lists a Scottish lawyer's library, Karen Baston demonstrates that the books Charles Areskine owned, used in practice, and read for pleasure embedded him in the intellectual culture that expanded in early eighteenth-century Scotland. Areskine and his fellow advocates emerged as scholarly and sociable gentlemen who led their nation. Lawyers were integral to and integrated with the Scottish society that allowed the Scottish Enlightenment to take root and flourish within Areskine's lifetime.

  • Introduction
  • 1560-1843 reformation to disruption
  • 1843-1929 disruption to union
  • The Church of Scotland today
  • Outside establishment
  • Education
  • Personal relationships : marriage, civil partnerships, divorce and children
  • Other interactions of religion and law
  • Conclusion.
The interaction of faith and the community is a fundamental of modern society. The first country to adopt Presbyterianism in its national church, Scotland adopted a system of church government, which is now in world-wide use. This book examines the development and current state of Scots law. Drawing on previous material as well as discussing current topical issues, this book makes some comparisons between Scotland and other legal and religious jurisdictions. The study first considers the Church of Scotland, its 'Disruption' and statutorily recognised reconstitution and then the position of other denominations before assessing the interaction of religion and law and the impact of Human Rights and various discrimination laws within this distinctive Presbyterian country. This unique book will be of interest to both students and lecturers in constitutional and civil law, as well as historians and ecclesiastics.

Exploring the relationship between law and society, this classic edition of Common Law and Feudal Society brings a key legal history text back to life in a popular new series. The close links between the Scots and English law in the Middle Ages have long been recognised. This text assesses the relevance of traditional approaches to Scottish legal history, setting the development of medieval law within the context of a society in which private lordship, exercised through courts and other less formal methods of dispute settlement, played a key role alongside royal justice. Based on extensive research, this book examines the brieves of novel dissasine, mortancestry and right, and legal remedies for the recovery of land, as well as aspects of the early history of the Scottish legal profession and the origins of the Court of Session.

The UK is almost unique in having never adopted a written constitution or other fundamental law. Why did this commitment arise in Scotland?

The September 2014 Scottish independence referendum was an event of profound constitutional and political significance, not only for Scotland, but for the UK as a whole. Although Scottish voters chose to remain in the UK, the experience of the referendum and the subsequent political reaction to the 'No' vote that triggered significant reforms to the devolution settlement have fundamentally altered Scotland's position within the Union. The extraordinary success of the Scottish National Party at the 2015 General Election also indicates that the territorial dimension to UK constitutional politics is more prominent than ever, destabilising key assumptions about the location and exercise of constitutional authority within the UK. The political and constitutional implications of the referendum are still unfolding, and it is by no means certain that the Union will survive. Providing a systematic and academic analysis of the referendum and its aftermath, this interdisciplinary edited collection brings together public lawyers, political scientists, economists, and historians in an effort to look both backwards to, and forwards from, the referendum. The chapters evaluate the historical events leading up to the referendum, the referendum process, and the key issues arising from the referendum debate. They also explore the implications of the referendum both for the future governance of Scotland and for the UK's territorial constitution, drawing on comparative experience in order to understand how the constitution may evolve, and how the independence debate may play out in future.

The second volume in a collection of the most influential essays on legal history from the career of John W Cairns. Enlightenment, Legal Education and Critique deals with broad themes in Legal History, such as the development of Scots Law through the major legal thinkers of the Enlightenment, essays on Roman law and miscellaneous essays on the literary and philosophical traditions within law. Both volumes collect together and reprint a selection of some of the many articles and essays published by Professor John W Cairns over a distinguished career in Legal History. It is a mark of his international eminence that much of his prolific output has been published outside of the UK, in a wide variety of journals and collections. The consequence is that some of his most valuable writing has appeared in sources which are difficult to locate. First volumes to collect in one place the legal thinking of John W Cairns; Volumes 11 and 12 of the respected Edinburgh Studies in Law series and key essays on Scots law, Roman law and the Enlightenment.

  • Lord Kames' influence on some of the founders of the United States
  • A critical conclusion.
This book re-establishes the importance of the ideas and legal philosophy of Scottish jurist and philosopher Lord Kames. The Scottish jurist, judge, legal historian and philosopher Henry Home (1696-1782) took the title Lord Kames when he was elevated to the bench of the Scottish Court of Session in 1752. In the 18th century, his books were influential and widely read; the educated classes and representatives of the Enlightenment in England, France and in the German states were all familiar with his aesthetic and philosophical writings. Andreas Rahmatian explains Kames' conceptions of legal philosophy, including black letter law, legal science, legal theory, legal sociology and anthropology in its early stages, setting them in the context of the Scottish Enlightenment. He looks at how Kames came to be one of the forefathers of comparative law, sociology of law, legal psychology and 'legal science' in its proper meaning, as opposed to 'law'.
