The Stair Society: Scotland’s Legal History Society

Stair Society Publications

Since its inception in 1934 the Stair Society has published over seventy handsomely produced hardback volumes.

We aim to publish at least one volume each year. Some are of antiquarian interest, and others are of wider intellectual significance. Still others are useful to practising lawyers.

All volumes currently in print are available from our sales agent, Avizandum Law Bookshop in Edinburgh.

Stair Society members receive a complimentary copy of each volume published during their period of membership.

All our books are accessible free to members in electronic form on the HeinOnline legal database, after an interval of three years following hardback publication.

Members also receive a discount on the price of past volumes: £20 per volume compared with £45 for non-members.
