Our dynamic law programme spans a wide range of subject areas and publication formats, founded on the twin pillars of quality and originality, and serving all levels of the global academic market. Our aim is to publish work that interprets and articulates the law, but also work that innovates and challenges the status quo, often comparing systems or drawing lessons from other disciplines.

We're proud to publish monographs that advance our thinking or serve to define a field, concise overviews that introduce new fields of study, and state-of-the-art reference works - such as our acclaimed Research Handbooks, major Encyclopedia, and Commentaries - which provide a strong foundation for study and research.
