About Law's Future(s)

To mark the 2000 Annual Conference of the Society of Public Teachers of Law,the Society has organised a distinguished team of contributors to write a set of reflective and critical essays on the future of law in the United Kingdom, considering how it will or should develop over a wide range of areas. The essays are concerned not only with all the main branches of the law but also with socio-legal studies, legal education and legal practice.

In most of these areas the essays are written by two contributors so that the dialogue between them adds perception to their forecasts, taking account of past experience of developing the law via judicial activism or statutory reform processes and also of the European dimension.

This reflection upon the possible future milestones of UK law will provide stimulating and illuminating reading for all lawyers, whether academics or practitioners.

Reviews

“Lord Slynn of Hadley is right to state in his Foreword to the book that 'There is something for everyone'.
To anyone coming from a foreign jurisdiction and familiar with the basic concepts of English law, the contributions provide very useful information on recent developments.
” –  Jan Smits, Legal Studies

“This form of scholarly speculation based on profound expertise provides a stimulating and illuminating approach.” –  Jules Winterton, University of London, International Journal of Legal Information
