The Current Legal Problems lecture series and annual volume was established over fifty five years ago at the Faculty of Laws, University College London, and has long been recognized as a major reference point for legal scholarship. The continuing strength of Current Legal Problems is its representation of a broad range of legal scholarship opinion, theory, methodology, and subject matter, with an emphasis upon contemporary developments of law. Contributions to the 59th volume in the series include a major re-evaluation of the Human Rights Act from Trevor Allan; a survey of recent trends in British crime and control from Robert Reiner; an analysis of the E.U.'s impact on cultural diversity from Bruno de Witte; an examination of tax avoidance from Judith Freeman and a critique of E.U. constitutionalism from Neil Walker.
