Web watch: the Hamlyn Lectures online


Since 1949 the Hamlyn Trust in the United Kingdom has sought to make the law "more comprehensible to ordinary citizens" through an annual series of public lectures by distinguished judges, legal practitioners, academic lawyers and other eminent speakers. Together they have become known as the "The Hamlyn Lectures". To mark the trust's 60th anniversary, the whole series, previously published by Sweet & Maxwell, have been published on the web. Lectures include: "Freedom under the Law", by the Rt Hon Lord Denning (1949); "The Inheritance of the Common Law", by Richard O'Sullivan (1950); "The Proof of Guilt", by Professor Glanville Williams (1955); and "Trial by Jury", by the Rt Hon Lord Devlin.
