Enlightenment, Legal Education, and Critique : Selected Essays on the History of Scots Law, Volume 2 Hardback
Part of the Edinburgh Studies in Law series
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.
