This chapter examines the use of legal phraseology in the administrative material of the 18th-century Scottish university, through comparing a sub-corpus of university administrative prose from CMSW with the wider corpus itself. Results suggest the significant influence of legal phraseology, possibly through a deliberate attempt to mimic its conventions.
