Contextual Lecture: English Law and the Empire

Part of the Contextual Lecture Series: London: The Making of a Global City

This talk aims to be an entertaining and perhaps thought-provoking sketch of English law as a basic ingredient of the British Empire and Commonwealth - with a glance at International law also.

From 1974 to 1988 he was Professor of European Law in the University of London.

He currently advises on European law and aspects of international law. His books include The Sovereignty of Law:  the European Way (Hamlyn lectures, Cambridge University Press 2007).
