The protection of possession in Scots law.
This paper is concerned with how possession is protected in Scots law. Most of the paper is concerned with one possessory remedy in particular, the so-called possessory judgment. To see how this fits into the law of possession more generally, we shall begin with an overview of the Scots law of possession. Unlike the majority of civilian systems of property law, Scots law is not codified. Except where the law is governed by statute (and the law of possession is largely free from this), we look to the institutional writers of Scots law, especially Stair, and to the decisions of the courts.
