Are prisons effective and does trial by jury still work? How should the law deal with companies that cause fatal accidents? And what extra rights should children conceived using donor sperm have? This album introduces the legal reasoning behind legislation, rights and justice. Experts and specialist lawyers debate how the law should address criminal acts and issues such as freedom of speech, donor tracing and adoption, taking into account the wider picture of how laws are developed and whether they reflect their contemporary social context. This material forms part of The Open University course W100 Rules, rights and justice: an introduction to law.
