  • Scope and Contents

    The notes are almost identical with the text published as ‘Notes for the Use of the Students of the Municipal Law in the University of Edinburgh: Being a Supplement to Sir George Mackenzie`s Institutions’. They are followed, as in several copies of the dictates in Edinburgh University Library, by notes of Bayne`s lectures on Criminal Law; these differ considerably from his ‘Institutions of the Criminal Law of Scotland’; for a much fuller version see Adv.MS.25.3.12.
