Current Legal Problems 2009

Front Cover
Colm O'Cinneide, Christopher Campbell-Holt
Oxford University Press, Feb 4, 2010 - Law - 564 pages
The Current Legal Problems lecture series and annual volume was established around sixty years ago at the Faculty of Laws, University College London and has long been recognized as a major reference point for legal scholarship. The continuing strength of Current Legal Problems is its representation of a broad range of legal scholarship opinion, theory, methodology, and subject matter, with an emphasis upon contemporary developments of law.
Contributions to the 62nd volume in the series include a comparative analysis of UK and US responses to terrorism, a discussion of the current legal solutions to the issue of cohabitation, an analysis of the broadening scope of risk regulation, and essays on subjects as diverse as media regulation, art and law, and abstraction and equality.
