Focusing on one text, Prerogativa Regis, this book examines legal education at the Inns of Court in the late fifteenth/early sixteenth century through surviving lecture notes. It demonstrates the ways in which the law developed from generation to generation; the points of contention within and between generations, and the ways in which the general knowledge of the legal profession was utilized and refined. It also considers whether the lawyers' treatment of this charged topic was affected by political pressures from outside the Inns.Read more
