Description

 Law Society of Scotland, Butterworths Law (Scotland), Edinburgh, 1987. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. Navy blue cloth boards with silver lettering and decoration to front board and spine. Silk page ribbon on each volume. All volumes are tight and clean, slightly dusty but showing little sign of wear. 23 volumes plus consolidated index. The "Stair Memorial Encyclopaedia provides the only comprehensive narrative statement of the law of Scotland. "Written by experts in their field, Stair writers are solicitors, advocates, barristers, judges, sheriffs, and academics. Many have been influential in the development of Scots Law as members of the Scottish Law Commission, working within the Scottish Parliament, or serving in the Court of Session or the High Court of Justiciary. The Encyclopaedia ranks among that select group of publications which is cited with approval before the courts. "Containing over 130 titles in 25 volumes and Reissue binders, it covers the whole spectrum of Scots law, from Administrative Law, through Criminal Law, Obligations and Property, to Wills and Succession. It incorporates law derived from every source and, while concentrating on the specialities of Scots law, also covers law common to the whole of the United Kingdom. With more powers devolved to the Scottish Parliament, it is particularly good for those working across jurisdictions or for those unfamiliar with Scots Law as it offers clear definitions of Scots Law terms and descriptions of the differences of the positions in Scots Law. "The Encyclopaedia is arranged alphabetically by title and each title is broken down into convenient and logical numbered sections in which the substantive law is summarised. Each statement of law is supported by citation of authority, and there are copious references to sources etc. This is an extremely heavy item and additional carriage will be required for delivery outside the UK. Seller Inventory # 066532
