Chapter Summary

Information about the earliest Danish procedure is scanty and scattered and mainly originates in the last half of The Book on Inheritance and Heinous Crimes, which as mentioned above only dealt with situations that could not be resolved through fines. The Ordinance on Manslaughter also called for a more difficult proof compared to The Book on Heinous Crimes in its § 8. In the main, the law of procedure in Eric's Law for Sjælland was close to the accusatory form that is characteristic of The Book on Inheritance and Heinous Crimes, The Law of Skåne and Valdemar's Law for Sjælland, with their insistence on personal suits76 and the production of proof by the parties involved. Similar to the earlier laws the Law of Jylland did not have a systematic presentation of the rules of procedure.
