M. D. A. Freeman, R. Halson
Oxford University Press, 1995 - Law - 347 pages
This year's volume of collected papers in the Current Legal Problems series contains the now customary selection of high-quality essays by a group of outstanding scholars. For family lawyers there will be much of interest in the papers by John Eekelaar and Dame Brenda Hale, both of whom adopt a bird's-eye view of family law. For those interested in European Community law Bob Hepple's essay on social values in European law will be important. For commercial lawyers there is, as always, much to whet the appetite; Andrew Burrows's survey of the problem of concurrent liability, as well as Ben Pettet's examination of the principle of limited liability and Professor Hiroshi Oda's examination of derivative actions in Japan.
In keeping with UCL's strong traditions in legal theory, comparative law, and international law there are important new essays by Nicola Lacey, James Crawford, and, John Bell. Rounding off the volume Sheila McLean writes about the human genome project, Davina Cooper contributes an essay on religious education and the law, Avrom Sherr writes about the legal profession and Lord Justice Glidewell examines the present state of immigration law in the United Kingdom. These are all powerful and original essays which will be of lasting interest to a wide range of readers.
