Abstract:The central theme of John Finlays research is the legal profession in the northern part of the British Isles during the reign of James V 1513-1542. Dr. Finlay specifically concentrates on the advocates who were admitted to the college of justice at the time of its establishment. The author has chosen these advocates because they are the first lawyers unambiguously connected with a particular court in Scotland whose names are known and whose careers may be studied in reasonable detail. In order to be able to assess continuity and change, the current study also discusses the period preceding the foundation of the college of justice.
