The fourth collection of essays in this long-established series brings together some of the leading contributors to Oxford's course on the Philosophical Foundations of Common Law for the Bachelor of Civil Law. Key issues in contract, tort, and criminal law are subjected to philosophical scrutiny, as well as concerns, such as the significance of personhood (both natural and corporate) in law and legal theory.

The aim of the book, like the aim of the course, is to make a major contribution to thinking about the common law, which can provide an exciting new basis for advanced teaching and further research.
