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. Contributors Andrew Ashworth, Stephen Bailey, Rebecca Bailey-Harris, Nicholas Bamforth, Kit Barker, John Birds, Anthony Bradney, Margaret Brazier, Richard Card, Elizabeth Cooke, Fiona Cownie, Keith Ewing, Conor Gearty,. Nicola Glover, Desmond Greer, Brigid Hadfield, Johnathan Harris, David Hayton, Jo Hunt, John Jackson, Tim Jewell, John Lowry, Laura Macgregor, Judith Masson, David McClean, Gillian Morris, David Oughton, John Parkinson, Alan Paterson, Colin Reid, Sir Richard Scott, Jo Shaw, Lionel Smith, Brenda Sufrin, Phil Thomas, Joseph Thomson, Adam Tomkins, Martin Wasik, Sally Wheeler, Richard Whish, Sarah Worthington.
