Description : Originally published in 1922, this book examines legal statutes and their interpretation in English courts during the reigns of Edward I, Edward II and Edward III. Distinguished legal historian Theodore Plucknett presents problems such as mistranslations, ignorance among lawyers and, in some instances, outright refusal by the courts to enforce certain statutes, and how these errors in enforcement changed the role of the government in lawmaking and legal practice. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in British legal history.

Description : Highly publicized legal cases, such as those involving libel verdicts, obscenity prosecutions, the First Amendment, and other areas of media law have focused attention on only one part of the media's impact on law. This study, the first to explore the broad influence of computers and television on the future of the legal process, explains the critical role of information and argues that the influence of the new modes of communication can be seen in changes occurring in many areas of the law. These areas include the goals and purposes of law, the doctrines and rules of law, the processes law uses to settle disputes and shape behavior, the legal profession, and the values and concepts that underlie our system of law.

Description : The Law and Parliament is a collection of essays by leading constitutional and parliamentary experts on issues that are at the core of current debate about the changing British constitution and the sometimes difficult relationships between government and law. The book deals with matters of intense topical debate including the incorporation of the European Convention on Human Rights and the implications of the Human Rights Act 1998, the establishment of a new Scottish Parliament, ways in which the courts impinge upon the law of Parliament and vice versa and the Nolan Report. It also examines the position of lawyers as members of the two Houses of Parliament and looks at the mechanism through which Parliament obtains legal advice.

Description : Among the most prominent scholars of language and law is Peter Tiersma, a law professor at Loyola Law School with a doctorate in linguistics (co-editor of The Oxford Handbook of Language and Law). Tiersma's significant body of work traverses a variety of legal and linguistic fields. This book offers a selection of twelve of Tiersma's most influential publications, divided into five thematic areas that are critical to both law and linguistics: Language and Law as a Field of Inquiry, Legal Language and its History, Language and Civil Liability, Language and Criminal Justice, and Jury Instructions. Each paper is accompanied by a brief commentary from a leading scholar in the field, offering a substantive conversation about the ramifications of Tiersma's work and the disagreements that have often surrounded it.
