Within the general category of "mixed systems" a special affinity exists between the laws of Scotland, Sri Lanka and South Africa. This relationship will be considered by commenting first, in Part Two, on the general position, followed, in Part Three, by a particular case study of positive prescription applicable to land. The mixed civil / common law systems of South Africa and Scotland having been studied in recent projects, Part Two will pay most attention to the Sri Lankan system. This approach will continue in Part Three, with the focus on Sri Lanka and only brief comment on the Scottish and South African systems of prescription which have been analysed, explained and compared in recent expert literature.
