Perpetuities in Scots Law

Stair Society Volume 31

‘Perpetuities in Scots Law’ has its origin in a Ph.D. thesis submitted to the University of Edinburgh in 1975 and comprises, with a few modifications, the first part (and main text) of that thesis. It represents a study of the origins and development of the perpetuity principle in Scotland, of the rules of common law embodying that principle and of the legislation enacted in reaction to it.
