About Fundamental Values

The aim of this book is to explore the ethical basis of law within both the mainstream and peripheral areas of curriculum,including the European dimension. It reflects a current development in legal scholarship at Exeter University which aims to bring to the fore ethical perspectives which are still relatively unknown in the UK. The book also marks attainment of three milestones in the evolution of Exeter Law School; its establishment in 1923; the creation of the Bracton Chair in 1948 and the adoption of the title of School of Law in 1998. The contributing authors are all either current members of the School or distinguished Exeter alumni.
