Excerpt

European Supreme Courts: A Portrait through History is a lavishly illustrated hardback book, the culmination of more than three years' work by a team of leading legal historians and experts drawn from faculties across Europe and beyond. The book explores in a lively and accessible style the history of supreme courts structures throughout the European continent from the high medieval period to the modern day. The story is one of considerable diversity, but it also reveals many common themes which influenced the practice of law at the highest level in different times and places. The book serves to set the contemporary role of the international supreme courts within the context of a strikingly rich legacy of legal traditions, culture and history in Europe.
