Abstract

Even in these latter days of restlessly globtrotting academia, Professor Modeers very kind invitation to participate in the symposium convened to mark the 400th anniversary of the Svea Court of Appeal came as a wholly unexpected and delightful surprise. I was and remain most grateful for the opportunity which it as offered to learn more about courts of appeal in early modern Sweden and Europe generally, as also to think about the appellate functions of England's and from the 1707 Act of Union between England and Scotland, Britain's House of Lords in an explicitly comparative context.

Keywords: 400th anniversary of the Svea court of appeal, House of Lords Court of Appeal
