Raising a Clameur

Raising a Clameur

Haro! Haro! Haro! A l'aide mon Prince. On me fait tort. - Remember these words - you never know when you might need them! 

When your property is under threat and there isn't time to go for help, the Clameur de Haro may be the only thing to turn to. 

The cry of the Clameur de Haro acts as an injunction, stopping wrong-doers instantly. The ancient cry has been heard in Jersey for nearly a thousand years and is still used today. This book reviews cases dating back to the 13th century and through to present day, examining examples of the Clameur de Haro found in the records. 

Written in an anecdotal style, yet retaining the legal aspects of the Clameur de Haro, this book is aimed at everyone, from the man in the street to those in the legal profession.
