Scots law as a civilian system: a response.
This article responds to Lord Gill's speech given to the Judicial Institute on 14 July 2016, concerning the Roman law origins of the Scottish legal system, discussing how this tradition means that the Scottish system is a blend of civil and common law elements. The author discusses whether Scottish lawyers should look to English precedent for guidance.
