The Legal History of Wales
This outstanding book traces the various strands of Wales' legal history from its beginnings to the present day, identifying and assessing the importance of the native Welsh, Roman and English influences to Wales's legal social identity. Alongside these influences, the customs of the native Welsh people maintained an important role not only until Wales was united legally with England in the sixteenth century but through to the nineteenth-century abolition of Wales's own law courts, the Great Sessions. Since then, the separate legal identity of Wales as witnessed by its legal history has played a significant part in the rise of national consciousness and the emergence of new, distinctly Welsh, legal institutions such as the National Assembly at the end of the twentieth century. Written throughout in an engaging and comparative narrative style, this treatise provides an excellent introduction to not only Welsh legal history but to the legal histories of England and ancient Rome as well. It includes a glossary of native Welsh legal terms.
