Competition Law EC Competition Law Giorgio Monti, London School of Economics and Political Science The development of competition law in the EU can be explored through three interrelated perspectives: the extent to which controversies in economic thinking affect the design of the law; how changing political visions about the objectives of competition law have caused shifts in the interpretation of the rules; and the institution in charge of applying the rules. The economic and political debates on competition law show that it is a contested terrain, and the way courts and competition authorities apply the law reflects their responses to the objectives and economics of competition law. By characterising the application of competition law as a continuous response to policy and economic debates, the author casts fresh perspectives on the subject. Written with competition law students in mind, Monti sets out economic concepts in a non-technical manner and explores the policy dimension of competition law by referring to key cases and contemporary policy initiatives.


… the most readable and yet thoughtful account on the market. Whilst being very practical, it has the great benefit of making clear the distinctive contributions of law and politics (not simply economics) to competition law in the EU.” Daniel Wilsher, City University London

• Non-technical reviews of the relevant economic literature allow all readers to participate fully in the discussion of competition law. • Detailed case studies illustrate the operation of rules in specific circumstances, as well as their general application for a fuller understanding. • The introduction of additional topics for study gives the student the broadest possible perspective on the subject.

Corporate and Commercial Law

2nd Edition

Corporate Insolvency Law Perspectives and Principles Vanessa Finch, London School of Economics and Political Science The first edition of Corporate Insolvency Law proposed a fundamentally revised concept of insolvency law, intended to serve corporate as well as broader social ends. This second edition takes on board a host of changes that subsequently reshaped insolvency law and practice and considers the implications of changes in the provision and trading of credit, the movement of an increasing amount of ‘insolvency work’ to the pre-formal insolvency stage of corporate affairs and the arrival, on the insolvency scene, of a new cadre of specialists in corporate turnaround. Vanessa Finch also argues that changes of approach are needed if insolvency law is to develop with coherence and purpose, and she offers a framework for such an approach.

… this is a valuable addition to the specialist library. … the author is to be congratulated for the sheer amount of work and scholarship that she has put into this book, which should not be off the shelves of any serious student of the subject.” International Company and Commercial Law Review

• Links theory and practice whilst offering a critical approach that challenges conceptual underpinnings and draws on disciplines beyond the law. • Examines the shifting boundaries of formal and informal corporate insolvency processes and the changes in the provision and trading of credit, e.g. the pre-packaged administration and the ‘fragmentation’ of credit.

12 5th Edition

Sentencing and Criminal Justice Andrew Ashworth, University of Oxford Andrew Ashworth expertly examines the key issues in English sentencing policy and practice including the mechanisms for producing sentencing guidelines. He considers the most high-profile stages in the criminal justice process such as the Court of Appeal’s approach to the custody threshold, the framework for the sentencing of young offenders and the abiding problems of previous convictions in sentencing. Taking into account the Criminal Justice and Immigration Act 2008 and the Coroners and Justice Act 2009, the book’s inter-disciplinary approach places the legislation and guidelines on sentencing in the context of criminological research, statistical trends and theories of punishment. By examining the law in relation to elements of the wider criminal justice system, including the prison and probation services, students gain a rounded perspective on the relevant principles and problems of sentencing and criminal justice. • Offers a unique approach to exploring the subject, linking criminal law and justice. • Provides coverage of areas such as public disorder and policing - rarely covered in more doctrinal texts. • Case law and readings from across the legal, political and criminological discipline give full context to the subject.

5th Edition

International Commercial Litigation Text, Cases and Materials on Private International Law Trevor C. Hartley, London School of Economics and Political Science This carefully structured, practice-orientated textbook provides everything the law student needs to know about international commercial litigation. The strong comparative component provides a thoughtprovoking international perspective, while at the same time allowing readers to gain unique insights into litigation in English courts. Three important themes of the book analyse how the international element may call into question the power of the court to hear the case, whether it should exercise this power, whether foreign law applies, and whether the court should take into account any foreign judgement. Hartley provides the reader with extracts from leading cases and relevant legislation, together with an extensive reference library of further reading for those who wish to explore the topic in more detail, making this a valuable, single-source textbook. The title will benefit from a companion website, setting out all relevant case law developments for the students. • Substantial extracts for leading cases are set out, so students can get an insight into how judges think.

By extensive use of examples and extracts from the texts and materials that form and shape the scholarly and public debates over technology regulation, it presents complex material in a stimulating and engaging manner. Co-authored by a leading scholar in the field with a scholar new to the area, it combines comprehensive knowledge of the field with a fresh approach. This is essential reading for students of law and technology, risk regulation, policy studies, and science and technology studies.

European Law European Union Internal Market Law Friedl Weiss, Universität Wien, Austria Clemens Kaupa, VU University Amsterdam This is the market’s most student-friendly textbook on EU internal market law, covering everything students need to know about the legal and regulatory framework of the internal market and eliminating the need for a full EU law text. Concise and focused, chapters explore the underlying socio-economic and historical contexts of EU law, and offer a thorough examination of the law’s technical aspects, ensuring that students gain a rich understanding of the way that legal rules and structures have developed from key political and social debates. Key concepts are illustrated by excerpts, summaries and discussions of classic and modern cases. Numerous features include text boxes, illustrative cases, legal interpretations, tables, and suggestions for further reading, which support students with little background knowledge of the subject, leading them to total mastery of the material. • Concise and focused, but covers everything students need to know for an EU substantive law course. • Examines the four fundamental freedoms, as well as the fifth, ‘union citizenship’, and related matters. • This textbook is focused and student-friendly, and can be easily understood and navigated by students with English as a second language.

Weiss and Kaupa have got their finger on the pulse of the EU internal market’s core in a masterful and still surprisingly reader-friendly manner. Leading case-law is intermingled with theoretical and policy analysis, whereas the most important provisions of EU’s primary and secondary law are highlighted - all this, in a clear and systematic manner. Additionally, an analytical framework used along the four fundamental freedoms allows rising to the challenge of deciphering the essentials of the EU internal market law. An informative read for scholars and an indispensable tool for any student interested in understanding the essentials of EU’s substantive law.” Panagiotis Delimatsis, Tilburg Law and Economics Center (TILEC), Tilburg University

European Law EU External Relations Law Text, Cases and Materials Bart Van Vooren, ALTIUS, Brussels Ramses A. Wessel, University of Twente, Enschede, The Netherlands This major new textbook for students in European law uses a text, cases and materials approach to explore the law, politics, policy and practice of EU external relations, and navigates the complex questions at the interface of these areas. The subject is explored by explaining major constitutional principles, and elaborating upon them in policy-specific chapters ranging from common commercial policy and development policy over CFSP/CSDP and AFSJ to energy and enlargement policy. Specific attention is given to the relationship between European integration, the role of law, and the EU as an effective international actor. Designed for easy navigation, chapters include key objectives, summaries and textboxes, which frame key issues and guide the reader through the functioning of legal principles. Students gain a detailed understanding of the historical development, context and present functioning of EU external relations law in a highly politicised European and international environment.


Van Vooren and Wessel produced an exceptionally good book, both in terms of selection of material and its presentation. Without a doubt, this volume will become a classic, a real must have for academics and practitioners dealing with external relations of the European Union.” Adam Lazowski, School of Law, University of Westminster

• Key text for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, and also an ideal reference for academics and practitioners of European law. • Includes chapter objectives and summaries, easily navigable structure with brief sections and text boxes to guide students through the functioning of legal principles and to emphasise key concepts. • Critical: employing three guiding perspectives, the authors allow students to progressively ‘construct’ the big picture of EU external relations law, rather than simply absorb information on the field.

International Law Modern Treaty Law and Practice

3rd Edition

Anthony Aust, London School of Economics and Political Science This new edition of a textbook first published in 2000 provides a comprehensive account of the law of treaties from the viewpoint of an experienced practitioner.

Modern Treaty Law and Practice is essential reading for teachers and students of law, political science, international relations and diplomacy, who have an interest in treaties. • Each chapter has been updated to include many more detailed examples of treaties and related documents (e.g. MOUs). • Written by an experienced practitioner, conveying the practical side of treaty law. • Uses non-technical language, making it accessible to all. • Contains more candid information than previous editions, as the author has now left his post in the Foreign Commonwealth Office.

International Law Jan Klabbers, University of Helsinki Written by one of the world’s leading international lawyers, this is a landmark publication in the teaching of international law. International law can be defined as ‘the rules governing the legal relationship between nations and states’, but in reality it is much more complex, with political, diplomatic and socio-economic factors shaping the law and its application. This refreshingly clear, concise textbook encourages students to view international law as a dynamic system of organizing the world. Bringing international law back to its first principles, the book is organised around four questions: where does it come from? To whom does it apply? How does it resolve conflict? What does it say? Building on these questions with both academic rigour and clarity of expression, Professor Klabbers breathes life and energy into the subject. Footnotes point students to the wider academic debate while chapter introductions and final remarks reinforce learning. • Landmark new textbook by leading international law scholar. • Gives the broadest perspective on the subject by looking at not only legal but diplomatic and political context. • Clear four-part structure guarantees students’ understanding.

This is a refreshing addition to the long list of textbooks on international law. It comprehensively discussed all the fields of international law that a reader of an introductory textbook will be interested in. Yet, it does much more, by explaining why [it is] often impossible to identify a single right answer to any legal question and by placing international law in a broader context of global governance, politics and ethics. Written in Klabbers’ characteristic lucid and critical style, this is a book that many readers will enjoy reading, rather than just studying.’ André Nollkaemper,

International Law An Introduction to International Institutional Law


2nd Edition

International Environmental Law

Jan Klabbers, University of Helsinki

An Introduction

International institutions are powerful players on the world stage, and every student of international law requires a clear understanding of the forces that shape them. For example, with increasing global influence comes the need for internal control and accountability. This thought-provoking overview considers these and other forces that govern international institutions such as the UN, EU and WTO, and the complex relationship that exists between international organizations and their member states. Covering scholarly developments, such as the rise of constitutionalism and global administrative law, and analysing the impact of important cases, such as the ICJ’s Genocide case (2007) and the Behrami judgment of the European Court of Human Rights (2007), its clarity of explanation and analytical approach allow students to understand and think critically about a complex subject.

Medical Law and Medical Ethics Nils Hoppe, Universität Hannover, Germany José Miola, University of Leicester A focus on the interplay between medical law and medical ethics makes this refreshing new textbook the most balanced approach available to students of law and medicine. By offering a unique chapter structure which gives equal weight to both the legal and ethical issues it allows for an appreciation of all factors at play in the field of medical law. In addition, its student-friendly writing style combined with critical analysis gives students the tools to engage with key issues and form their own understanding. Accompanying online case studies convey the law in practice, and encourage students to consider their own views and arguments in terms of legal analysis and ethical consideration. Coverage of recent judicial cases and statutes, with a good balance of factual detail and critical analysis, allows students to engage with this evolving discipline. • The equal consideration of medical law and medical ethics provides the most balanced approach available. • A unique, consistent chapter structure sets out legal principles, draws conclusions and then explores the ethical questions arising from those principles.

Medical Law

This book provides a thoughtful and insightful engagement with the subject of medical law. In encouraging readers to think thematically across different substantive areas, the authors have succeeded in not only illuminating some of the most crucial ethical debates for this area of legal regulation, but of telling the story of the development of medical law and of highlighting the difficulty of the decisions that have to be reached. The book’s conversational style is sure to provoke further interesting debate amongst its readership.” Julie McCandless, London

Tort Law


Atiyah’s Accidents, Compensation and the Law

8th Edition

Peter Cane, Australian National University, Canberra Patrick Atiyah, University of Oxford Since publication of the seventh edition of this seminal text, personal injury law has witnessed momentous changes. A major overhaul of the social security system began in 2012 and the Equality Act 2010 significantly modifies anti-discrimination law and its impact on the disabled. But perhaps the most important legal developments have affected the financing and conduct of personal injury claiming and the operation of the claims-management industry. This new edition takes account of all this activity while setting it into a wider and longer perspective. Complaints that Britain is a ‘compensation culture’ and that the tort system is out of control are explained and assessed and options for further change are explored. Through the turmoil and controversy, the tort system remains a central feature of the legal and social landscape. The book’s enduring central argument for its radical reform remains as compelling as ever. • Explains the basic concepts of personal injury law and how it relates to other areas of the law. • Takes account of the latest statistical and empirical data about the operation of the tort system. • Examines complaints that Britain is a compensation culture and that the tort system is out of control.
