Justice Summary

Justice: Continuity and Change by Lord Dyson

This selection of essays, speeches and personal reflections, draws on the analysis of one of the leading lawyers of a generation. Lord Dyson as Master of the Rolls and Head of the Civil Justice System oversaw a period of reform of both law and legal process. This collection discusses some key themes of, and challenges faced during, his tenure as one of the most senior lawyers in England and Wales. Through these insightful, engaging and compelling pieces, a picture emerges of a robust system of law whose core values can be plotted back to the Magna Carta, but which is flexible enough to respond to current changes without fracturing. A truly compelling exploration of continuity and change in the law by one of its key jurists.

Justice Reviews

[A] truly excellent and delightful work. This is a veritable feast of John's lectures. -- The Right Honourable Lord Briggs of Westbourne * The Middle Templar Magazine *
The conception of justice pursued by Lord Dyson to navigate the line between continuity and change is one based on rigorous, close and precise analysis of the legal issues before him... Justice: Continuity and Change showcases a demonstrably strong approach to the judicial role across a rich spectrum of law in this jurisdiction and others. -- Peter Sibley * Cambridge Law Journal *
The overall approach seems to be an openness to cautious incrementalism, and a willingness to defend decisions the particular judge thinks fall on the right side of the line for development: sometimes continuity, sometimes change... These collections provide an opportunity to understand and engage with the whats, whys and wherefores of the judicial role at a time of evolution for the judiciary and the law. -- James Lee and Simon Lee, The Dickson Poon School of Law, King's College London and The Open University, Milton Keynes * Legal Studies *
