Seems to me this page should be merged with that of Lord President of the Court of Session, or a redirection from that page. It would also be worth looking at the situation where we have a different page for Justiciar of the Lothians. Maybe these should be merged. David Lauder 20:25, 25 December 2006 (UTC).

We should also have a Justiciar of Galloway page. Merging the three Justiciarships into an article on Legal institutions of Scotland in the Middle Ages, starting by renaming the existing Legal institutions of Scotland in the High Middle Ages, might be better. An idea anyway. Angus McLellan (Talk) 14:17, 26 December 2006 (UTC)

I confess I've never come across a Justiciar of Galloway, only north and south of The Forth. But something needs to be done. Alas I don't have administrative knowledge. David Lauder 10:01, 27 December 2006 (UTC)

I see no reason why anything should be done in regard to the separate existence of Justiciar of Scotland, Lothian and Galloway ... we may as well merge Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Prime Minister of Australia and other such offices into Political offices of the modern English world.

What happened in 1328? Was there any continuity between this office and that of Lord President of the Court of Session - that article suggests there is, but this one doesn't mention it. Either way, it should say what happened after this date and why the list stops there. Thanks, Jonathan Oldenbuck (talk) 11:20, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

I think it's just that Barrow's list in The Kingdom of the Scots ends about then. Angus McLellan (Talk) 11:42, 27 March 2008 (UTC)
