Review of Mixed Jurisdictions Compared: Private Law in Lousiana and Scotland

The Legal History Blog has posted exerpts from George Drago’s review of Mixed Jurisdictions Compared: Private Law in Louisiana and Scotland (Edinburgh: EUP, 2009).

This collection of essays, edited by Elspeth Christie Reid (Edinburgh Law School) and Vernon Valentine Palmer (Tulane University Law School), is described by Drago as an ‘excellent but challenging’ book, one which ‘reminds us of our debt to legal sources, traditions, and modalities that lie beyond our shores’.

The full review is available here.

Two books edited by John Cairns and Paul du Plessis in the Edinburgh Studies in Law series also get a mention in the review: Beyond Dogmatics: Law and Society in the Roman World (2007) and The Creation of the Ius Commune: From Casus to Regula (2010)
