Scottish Legal Dictionary

Post by devonliz »

I needed to look up some terms in a Scottish document that mentioned my ancestor, and found this book very useful:

A Dictionary and Digest of the Law of Scotland, With Short Explanations of the Most Ordinary English Law Terms. To which is Added a Supplement, Containing an Analysis of the Court of Session Act, the Advocation and Suspension Act, the Diligence Act, and the Entail Excambion Act – William Bell

It's one of those resources that could swallow up an hour or two!

But it is a legal dictionary so I expect they wanted to cover everything!.
