Chapter Summary

This section of the book titled Civil Justice in Renaissance Scotland contains 3 appendices. The first appendix presents fee and heritage protests, exceptions and remits during the year, 1466-1513. The second appendix explains sittings of council and auditors during the year, 1478-1506. Third appendix shows the actions involving the pleading of an exception to the jurisdiction of Council and session over fee and heritage during the year, May 1529-May 1534. The book explores the nature of civil justice in Renaissance Scotland through a reconsideration of the foundation of the College of Justice in 1532. It is primarily concerned with the origins of a central court, and the implications of this for governance, the legal order and society in terms of both legal development and dispute resolution.
