The British Peerage is governed by a body of law that has developed over several centuries.
Much of this law has been established by a few important cases, and some of the more significant of these are addressed in this article.
Famous quotes containing the word law:
“Law without education is a dead letter. With education the needed law follows without effort and, of course, with power to execute itself; indeed, it seems to execute itself.”
—Rutherford Birchard Hayes (18221893)
