Chapter Summary

This is the conclusory chapter of the book, which shows how a more balanced impression of the changing course of dispute resolution in sixteenth-century Scotland can be given by incorporating the findings of systematic study of central justice. In this respect, the premise of the book has been that the history of the administration of justice should be addressed more systematically in its own terms as primarily the evolution of systems of jurisdiction providing legal remedies so as to do justice. The theme of jurisdictional change has been pursued in the book most obviously through the examination of how the Session acquired jurisdiction over fee and heritage.
