Hector MacQueen, ‘Private Law, National Identity and the Case of Scotland’

This is the text of the 26th James Wood Lecture delivered in the University of Glasgow on 25 October 2012. The lecture explores the relationship between private law and perceptions of national identity, taking Scotland as its main example. It concludes that, despite its apparent remoteness in some respects from the political process, private law can be seen as a key component of national identity alongside public and criminal law.
