SOME ACCOUNT OF THE JURISDICTION OF
BY JOHN PALMER, GENT.
AUTHOR OF THE PRACTICE OF APPEALS IN PARLIAMENT, &c.
TO WHICH IS ADDED,
THE JUDGMENT OF LORD CHANCELLOR LYNDHURST
IN THE CAUSE FREEMAN AGAINST FAIRLIE,
SAUNDERS & BENNING, LAW BOOKSELLERS,
(Successors to Joseph Butterworth & Son,)
43, FLEET STREET.
The want of a Treatise on the Practice of Appeals to the Privy Council, there not being any extant of which the Editor is aware, would alone, it is presumed, sufficiently warrant the appearance of this little Tract. The contemplated alteration, likely to take place in our legal system, by which the Appellate Jurisdiction, hitherto exercised by Delegates, is be transferred to the Council, and which must increase their juridical business, is an additional reason for such a Work. In preparing it, the Editor has availed himself, not merely of his own Experience, but of Assistance derived from other sources; and he flatters himself that the few following pages will be found to contain nearly all the Information on the subject, at present attainable by the profession.
Michaelmas Term, 1831.
