Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Inaugural Edition of Laws is devoted to a general examination of the theory, doctrine, and future trends of several of the foundational issues in legal scholarship. Each author is a world-class scholar eminent in his or her field. The purpose is to examine the history, current doctrine, theories, and future directions of the field as a whole. Each chapter, wherever possible, will focus on the most salient problems in the field, rather than close detailed examination of a small problem. He or she will, wherever possible, make the chapter readable and relevant to a transnational readership, so that the key ideas are not overly focused on a single country. We would like this inaugural volume to be a key reference point for scholars and the wider community interested in the field of law—as it has been, where it is today, and the directions in which it is heading.
