From the Editor Welcome to the inaugural issue of The Clarion â€“ journal of Marling School law society. It has been many months since I first proposed the idea of a journal to the law society. The team were very positive in their response and we felt that it would be a good idea to have an informative and discursive legal journal aimed at our fellow Sixth Form students. Out of this The Clarion was born. It has taken a great deal longer to get to a stage where we felt comfortable to publish than expected. I must thank my team not only for their patience but also their guidance and contributions. It goes without saying that without them this journal would simply not exist. The study of law is fascinatingly diverse; as such this issue aims to show you the widespread nature of legal topics but is by no means exhaustive. There is something in the law that can be of interest to all of us. This is noteworthy given the fact that the law affects us all and is such a fundamental idea that it is impossible to escape its significance. I hope you enjoy reading The Clarion and I look forward to bringing you subsequent issues in the not too distant future.
