All lawyers have an in-built need to revisit the great cases of the past. After all, that is the basis upon which common law is founded. A retrospective look at the people and circumstances behind the results of these great cases gives tremendous insight and understanding. This collection of essays examines key cases (both UK and international) that have changed or created the rules and procedures which govern our lives and which we abide by - cases which have changed our lives. It sets out the facts of each case and examines its impact, with emphasis on the human angle of the story, including:
  • Who were the people involved?
  • What was actually decided in the case?
  • What happened later and how did what was decided on the facts change our lives? What were the later implications for that area of law and/or other areas of law?
  • What legacy has the case left?

It also supports the rule of law, demonstrating that using something as abstract as judicial reasoning, we create a set of rules and procedures which govern our lives - the rule of law is the acceptance of this intellectual and abstract concept.

Following the international success of Volume 1 in 2010, Volume 2 presents a brand new selection of cases that have changed our lives.

This collection of essays examines key cases (both UK and international) that have changed or created the rules and procedures which govern our lives and which we abide by. It takes a retrospective look at the circumstances behind the results of these great cases, examining the facts and the lasting legacies, as well as revealing a human side to the events that is not always apparent from the law reports.

The themes addressed by the book demonstrate the rule of law, showing that through something as abstract as judicial reasoning, we create a set of rules and procedures which govern our lives. In support of the rule of law and the causes championed by LexisNexis, a sum of £1 from every copy of the book sold will be donated to Stop the Traffik, a global movement fighting against human trafficking.
