Quick Reference

Scottish legal post. From the 15th cent. the lord justice‐general was recognized as the supreme judge of criminal cases in Scotland, superseding the post of justiciar. In 1830 the Court of Session Act declared that after the death of the existing office‐holder, the 3rd duke of Montrose, the office of lord justice‐general would be merged with that of the lord president of the Court of Session.
