Abstract: The geographical position of Malta - in the centre of the Mediterranean - with its excellent harbour has given it an importance which is out of proportion to its size. As a result it has through the centuries been the coveted possession of many major powers and indeed its fate has been inevitably interwoven with the fate of the principal Mediterranean power of the time. Most of these powers - especially since the Middle Ages - have left in some way or other a mark on the evolution of the Maltese legal system. Indeed it said that the present legal system has been the result of a slow and gradual evolution throughout the centuries and that several factors have contributed to this evolution as each and every successive domination left its imprint on the Maltese legal system.
