The first section of this chapter discusses the Scottish translation of the French Laws of Oléron, which have never before been studied. This section provides conclusions on when the translation was made and by what route the text was most likely disseminated to Scotland. The remainder of the chapter is dedicated to local developments in lawmaking in the towns of Kampen, Lübeck and Danzig. These three towns drew up sea laws whose use remained for the most part restricted to their respective courts. In this chapter these texts are compared to the laws considered closest to them in order to determine whether the contents of these laws were influenced by legal developments elsewhere. Some mutual influences can be detected, but, again, no uniformity existed between any of the law compilations as a whole.

Keywords:   lawmaking, Scotland, Kampen, Lübeck, Danzig, local developments, sea law
