Current Legal Issues, like its sister volume Current Legal Problems, is based upon an annual colloquium held at University College London. Each year leading scholars from around the world gather to discuss the relationship between law and another discipline of thought. Each colloquium examineshow the external discipline is conceived in legal thought and argument, how the law is pictured in that discipline, and analyses points of controversy in the use, and abuse, of extra-legal arguments within legal theory and practice. Law and Anthropology, the latest volume in the Current Legal Issues series, offers an insight into the state of law and anthropology scholarship today. It focuses on the inter-connections between the two disciplines and also includes case studies from around the world.
Michael Freeman is Professor of English Law at University College London and is the series editor for Current Legal Issues. David Napier is Professor of Anthropology at University College London.
