UK Reports to the XVIIth International Congress of Comparative Law

This special issue of the EJCL draws together most of the national reports presented by reporters from the United Kingdom to the XVIIth International Congress of Comparative Law, held in Utrecht (The Netherlands) from 16 to 22 July 2006. The range of subject matter, and of the institutions, represented in this collection demonstrates the vigour of comparative law research in the UK universities.

Some of the reports reproduced here will also appear in print at a later date, as part of specialist volumes compiled by general reporters for individual subjects. However, the UK National Committee for Comparative Law (UKNCCL) is very grateful for the opportunity to publish the papers here in electronic form. Not only does this make the papers immediately available to a wide readership, but it also brings the considerable advantage of archiving the collection under a permanent Internet address. For this, the UKNCCL offers its thanks to the EJCL Editorial Board, and in particular its Editor-in-Chief, Professor Sjef van Erp, and Assistant Editor, Dick Broeren.

Elspeth Reid,
University of Edinburgh
Treasurer of the UK National Committee for Comparative Law
