Law and modern society by P. S Atiyah( Book )

37 editions published between 1983 and 2012 in English and Chinese and held by 917 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How and why is so much new law made? By what right does a judge order that someone be sent to jail? Why is so much of the law so contentious, and why should we, the people, accept the laws made by those who claim the right to govern us? In this lucid, stimulating, and completely updated survey, P. S. Atiyah introduces the reader to a number of fundamental issues about English law, the legal profession, and the adjudicative process. This new edition gives greater emphasis to the effect of membership of the European Community on English law, and gives an expanded account of the European Convention on Human Rights with its subsequent effects on our laws. Atiyah also looks at the recent controversy over the independence of the judiciary, problems arising from the cost of legal services and legal aid, and the many worrying miscarriages of justice which have tainted the legal system in the past decade

Instead it was based on reliance or the receipt of a benefit
Promises, morals, and law by P. S Atiyah( Book )

This is an analysis of the nature of promissory obligations. The subject is one which has attracted a great deal of attention among both moral and linguistic philosophers, but the book contends that much of the philosophical literature is flawed by its unreality and unfamiliarity with the serious problems that arise from the practice of promising

In particular, the discussion of recent cases and legislation is centred on why contract law is the way it is, whether it can be justified
The damages lottery by P. S Atiyah( Book )

19 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and Japanese and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A man slips on a dance floor and breaks his leg. He recovers damages. A child has both legs amputated as a result of meningitis and is awarded nothing. The law's justification for awarding damages in the first case is that the man's injury was the fault of someone else, while in the second case damages are denied because nobody was at fault. In this searching critique of the present law and practice relating to damages, Professor Patrick Atiyah shows that this system is in fact a lottery. He contends that the public are paying far too much for an unfair and inefficient insurance system and tha
