Law, Lawyers and Snails- a Scottish Historical Tour
AbstractScottish Jaw is unique as it has survived centuries of conflict and a political Act of Union nearly three centuries ago. What then makes Scots Jaw so special? It has retained a powerful and independent tradition in the face of overwhelming odds. Its influence is worldwide. Go up to the Law Institute of Victoria and visit a pub called the Snail in the Bottle -named after Scotland's most famous case-Donoghue v Stevenson. This case promoted the cause of consumer protection and a revised Jaw of negligence not only in Scotland, but in most of the English-speaking world.
