Reflections on the evolution of Scottish land law; read short lecture by Prof. Jim Hunter

We’re happy to publish this fascinating short lecture by Prof. Jim Hunter given to a recent gathering of Sheriffs serving the Grampian, Highlands and Islands Sheriffdom, on aspects of the history and development of land law in Scotland and the first recognition of the `human rights’ of the people.

Jim’s new book, on which he touches here, is entitled Set Adrift Upon the World, and is an account of the Sutherland Clearances. Further details can be found here.
