In an age where legal education is undergoing considerable change and facing a number of challenges, the Analysing Leading Works in Law series is designed to explore how the study of Law and legal sub-disciplines have developed so far and their likely future. The purpose of the series is to fire critical light at the way in which sub-disciplines within Law understand themselves and perpetuate their identity.
Each book focuses upon a different legal sub-discipline. It asks leading and emerging scholars in the field to select and analyse a ‘leading work’; one which has contributed internationally to the development of the sub-discipline as a whole. The chapters explore the likely implications and applications of the leading work upon the sub-discipline in question. The discussion may be in part autobiographical, exploring how the work in question has impacted upon the contributor’s own scholarship and understanding of the sub-discipline in question.
The books in this series are intended to assess the development of the sub-discipline in question and examine its potential future development. The leading works chosen are not meant to be exhaustive; they are simply illustrative and a means by which the contributors reflect upon the often unspoken question about how and why a sub-discipline has developed in the way that it has and the way in which it could develop in the future.
