Stephen Bottomley

Examining the role of shareholders in modern companies, this timely book argues that more should be expected of shareholders, both morally and legally. It explores the privileged position of shareholders within the corporate law system and the unique rights and duties awarded to them in contrast to other corporate actors. Introducing the concept of shareholders as responsible agents whose actions and inactions should be judged on that basis, Stephen Bottomley unites a number of distinct corporate governance discussions including stewardship, activism and shareholder liability.

Utilising key case studies and providing real-world examples of legal innovation, the book moves beyond discussion to action. It offers a rich set of examples, demonstrating how various design methods, including information, service, product and policy design, can be leveraged within research and practice.

Legal Design is a movement to make the law work better for people. This chapter makes the case that Legal Design constitutes a new attitude to law that reveals potential benefits in making law more participatory and human-centered. Despite its often radical departure from culturally inherited perceptions of what legal services look like and involve, Legal Design involves a turning towards law's virtues of certainty, direction, order and justice. The diverse applications of Legal Design in this collection show that it brings new opportunities to, in Dworkin's phrase, cast law in its best light. These contributions range across prototyping policy, proactive lawyering and effective contracting, the law/design cultural relationship, intellectual property, consumer and tenant protections, dispute resolution and legal education. The collection comes at a time when Legal Design is still in its emergent phase as a cognate field of activity, a new sub-discipline, and it contributes to the ongoing dialogue on the methods, mindsets and goals of Legal Design.
