Portfolio by the numbers
Publishing work from leading international authors, and new and upcoming legal scholars, our portfolio covers areas such as international law, banking & finance law, contract & tort law, human rights, and European law, with an increasing number of titles considering socio-legal practices and crossovers between disciplines. The scope of law application is broad, and our collection of Law books and journals reflects this, from books such as Modern Land Law and Constitutional & Administrative Law, to the Journal of Legal History.
