The 'Frontiers of Liability' is the title of a series of high-level seminars held in All Souls College, Oxford during 1993 and 1994. Drawing together top academics, practitioners and judges, these seminars have sought to identify current trends in English law and have provided a forum for experts to give their assessment of how the law will develop in the future. The papers produced for the first 4 seminars and the comments made by the distinguished rapporteurs
are reproduced in this volume. Anyone interested in the future of the law of restitution, the common law, judicial review, and the law relating to children will find these essays essential reading.Contributors: Charles Harpum, Sir Leonard Hoffman, Peter Birks, William Swadling,

`These papers will fascinate students and academics and would represent a challenging way to score these self study CPD points.'

`If you will allow yourselves to be encouraged to sample some of the riches contained in these two volumes you will find ready access to, and crisp analysis of, some of those greyest of "grey areas" so beloved of examiners.'
`Their appearance has been keenly awaited, and they will not disappoint those who were not able to attend the seminars. They are books of essays which no self-respecting law library in the common law jurisdictions can afford to be without, and no doubt they will also be attractive to a good number of non-institutional purchasers ... both volumes are especially valuable - and important - for those concerned with modern obligations law. The other two areas
fall within public law and family law.'
Cambridge Law Journal
`In choosing the authors of the papers Professor Birks has created a very impressive list of judges, academics, and practising lawyers. The scholarship displayed by all the authors is of the highest calibre and those who have an interest in any of the topics discussed should regard the relevant papers as being essential reading.'
