Law

The scope of our Law list will range from the personal and individual – such as family law and health care law, to international law where books will explore global issues, from humanitarian law, the law of conflict, environmental law and human rights. 

We are seeking to commission work that engages with current social problems and explores the way the law is responding, or failing to respond, to these issues in a global context. This list will focus on justice and rights, exploring the way the law works to protect the things that are most important to our society. It will also help readers engage with current global issues, grand social challenges and key areas of current academic debate.

We are especially interested in commissioning new books in the following areas:

  • environmental law
  • European law
  • family law
  • health law
  • human rights
  • law and society
  • public international law

My previous commissioning roles include working at Oxford University Press and the British Red Cross.

As an editor, it’s important to me to be able to develop books which fit with our mission to help shape our understanding of law and society. It is a privilege to work with authors who are focused on justice and rights, exploring the way the law works to protect the things that are most important to our society.
