Diverse Voices

Series Editors: Se-shauna Wheatle, Durham University and Jonathan Herring, University of Oxford

As law faculties, academics and students increasingly realise that their reading lists are “pale, male and stale,” the Diverse Voices series gives readers an opportunity to hear voices that have so often been silenced; the voices of black and minority ethnic, women, disabled, LGBTQI, working class and neuro-atypical people. Diverse Voices presents a ground-breaking new platform for debating and understanding the impact of the law on different marginalised groups and critiquing the law from the perspective of these groups.

This inclusive series of textbooks:

  • provides students with materials from an unprecedentedly diverse range of perspectives on core areas of legal study;
  • introduces them to insights that are not often available in mainstream analysis; and
  • better equips them to engage with the range of people and issues they will encounter in the world of work.

Showing how diversification can enrich, embolden and energise the study of law, these books offer law academics and students a unique insight into the voices which have too long been ignored by too many.
