2008 OUP Reprint of the original Butterworths edition

Two central themes run through The Due Process of Law. The first is the workings of the various 'measures authorised by the law so as to keep the streams of justice pure', and the second is the recent development of family law, focussing particularly on Lord Denning's contribution to the law of husband and wife.

These broad themes are elaborated through a discussion of Lord Denning's own judgements and opinions on a wide range of topics.All linked together with a lively, yet thoughtful and thought-provoking commentary, this work is truely a 'delight to read'. (Financial Times)
