It is my pleasant duty on behalf of the LSE Law Department to thank the outside contributors to the Centenary Lecture series on which this volume is based. The Department would also like to thank our patrons for this event, Professor L.C.B. Gower, Anthony Grabiner QC, Sir Robin Jacob and Sir Michael Mann, as well as Professor William Twining, Sir Arthur Watts QC and Lord Woolf for chairing individual lectures.
Inside the Department a huge debt of thanks is owed to Elizabeth Durant who organised the running of the lecture series. I owe particular thanks to Susan Hunt who worked to produce the book of the series. I am also grateful to Carol Harlow and Hugh Collins for their help as Convenor(s) of the Department.
Finally, I thank Richard Hart and his colleagues at Oxford University Press for their support in bringing an idea to fruition.
