Editorial


O'Nions, Helen, Nottingham Law Journal


I am very pleased to introduce the latest edition of the Nottingham Law Journal and to have the opportunity of taking over the role of editor. My predecessor, Tom Lewis carried out his duties with aplomb in often challenging circumstances, and ensured that the Journal continued to offer the highest quality of academic analysis and contemporary legal commentary.

For this particular edition I am most grateful to the submission from my colleague, Jane Jarman.

Our website is soon to be developed and will feature links to both Nottingham Law School's conference and seminar events in addition to links enabling access to Nottingham Trent University's distinguished lecture series. We intend to update the online archive and to include instructions for potential contributors with a simplified style-sheet.

In 2011, Nottingham Trent University has hosted two distinguished lectures of particular interest to those involved in the study and practice of law. In February, Sami Chakrabarti, Director of Liberty, presented a particularly timely lecture on current human rights challenges which addressed many topical issues including the right to vote for prisoners, the use of undercover policing in the environmental movement and the decision of the European Court of Human Rights in Gillan and Quinton v UK 2010. …
