Summary
The European Supreme Courts: A Portrait through History' introduces the largely forgotten history of our common European legal past. Written by 28 leading experts in the field, this publication surveys 1,000 years of legal history across the continent of Europe, focusing particularly on the role of Supreme judicators within national and state jurisdictions, and latterly on the relationships between national supreme courts and supra-national courts in Europe. This book examines the continuities and sets the contemporary role of the European supreme courts within the context of a rich legacy of legal traditions, culture and history across Europe
