NOTICE: Hart Titles

Hart Publishing has noted that Kristen Rundle’s Forms Liberate: Reclaiming the Jurisprudence of Lon L Fuller won the Second Prize in the Society of Legal Scholars Birks Prize for Outstanding Legal Scholarship 2012:

Lon L Fuller's account of what he termed 'the internal morality of law' is widely accepted as the classic twentieth century statement of the principles of the rule of law. Much less accepted is his claim that a necessary connection between law and morality manifests in these principles, with the result that his jurisprudence largely continues to occupy a marginal place in the field of legal philosophy.

In Forms Liberate: Reclaiming the Jurisprudence of Lon L Fuller, Kristen Rundle offers a close textual analysis of Fuller's published writings and working papers to explain how his claims about the internal morality of law belong to a wider exploration of the ways in which the distinctive form of law introduces meaningful limits to lawgiving power through its connection to human agency. By reading Fuller on his own terms, Forms Liberate demonstrates why his challenge to a purely instrumental conception of law remains salient for twenty-first century legal scholarship.

NOTICES: New Titles from Elgar

Elgar has announced the publication of the following:
Comparative Law And SocietyDavid S Clark, Comparative Law And Society:

Comparative Law and Society, part of the Research Handbooks in Comparative Law series, is a pioneering volume that comprises 19 original essays written by expert authors from across the world. This innovative handbook offers both a history of the field of comparative law and society and a thorough exploration of its methods, disciplines, and major issues, presenting the most comprehensive look into this contemporary field to date.

The Interaction Between Europe’s Legal SystemsGiuseppe Martinico and Oreste Pollicino, The Interaction Between Europe’s Legal Systems: Judicial Dialogue and the Creation of Supranational Laws:

This book examines the broad issue of the rapprochement between the legal systems of the EU and the European Convention of Human Rights (ECHR) and asks whether the two systems are converging. While the literature on the issue of the national application of EC/EU law or that of ECHR norms is voluminous, a specific comparative analysis that takes into account the national judicial treatment of both laws has been lacking, until now.
