Why should you buy Cases That Changed Our Lives
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 of activists around the world who passionately give their time and energy to build resilient communities and prevent human trafficking.
