'National treasure? I hate that. Too dusty, too in a cupboard, too behind glass, too staid ... What I love is being part of a company. On stage I am not trying to be myself, I'm trying to be someone else, the more unlike me the better.' From her first theatrical roles as a teenager in York to her scene-stealing performances as 'M' in the James Bond films, Dame Judi Dench's professional life has consisted of non-stop acting, leading to numerous accolades, including an Academy Award. BEHIND THE SCENES is a uniquely personal take on Dame Judi's life and brilliant career, showing her off stage as well as on: in the wings, off sets, in dressing rooms and happily larking about. Beautifully illustrated with photographs from her own collections, here are reflections and reminiscences on those who have mattered to her most - her family, fellow actors, directors and writers - communicated with the truth and insight of her acting.

Notwithstanding recent increases in the scope for judicial cooperation and dialogue between European courts, little research has been undertaken into the impact of the jurisprudence of the European Court of Justice, and the dialogue that arises therefrom, in national legal systems between courts and regulators. This coherent collection of original chapters provides unique insights into these developments – with a particular focus on consumer law – from a broad range of stakeholders, including academics and judges from the EU and the US.

A celebration of Britain's favourite actress, Judi Dench The very name Judi Dench encourages a warm and admiring response from the public and fellow actors alike. Her wide-ranging career includes numerous Shakespearean performances (most recently in ALL'S WELL THAT ENDS WELL at the RSC) and contemporary theatre (in plays by, among others, David Hare and Hugh Whitemore); on television (in the series A FINE ROMANCE and AS TIME GOES BY) and in the cinema (MRS BROWN, her Oscar-winning performance in SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE, THE SHIPPING NEWS, IRIS, and in four James Bond films as 'M'). Judi Dench is as popular as she is talented - when she and Maggie Smith appeared together in a David Hare play last year all seats were sold for the entire run within 24 hours. John Miller, her biographer, invited fellow actors, writers, and people of the theatre, film and television, to illustrate her genius and her character from their own experience and perspective. With contributors ranging from Billy Connolly to Hugh Whitemore, Bob Larbey to Tim Pigott-Smith, this is a unique portrait of the legend that is Dame Judi Dench.

Judicial Review Handbook

Writing in the sixth edition of this Handbook, author Michael Fordham described his ambition when writing the first edition (and indeed all subsequent editions) of this book as "to read as many judicial review cases as I could and to try to extract, classify and present illustrations and statements of principle". Behind this aim lay the practitioner's overwhelming need to know and understand the case-law. Without it, as Fordham says "much can be achieved in public law through instinct, experience and familiarity with general principles which are broad, flexible and designed to accord with common sense". But with knowledge of the case law comes the vital ability to be able to point to and rely on an authoritative statement of principle and working illustration. Knowing the case-law is crucial: "the challenge is to find it". This, the sixth edition of the Handbook, continues the tradition established by earlier editions, in rendering the voluminous case-law accessible and knowable. This Handbook remains an indispensable source of reference and a guide to the case-law in judicial review. Established as an essential part of the library of any practitioner engaged in public law cases, the Judicial Review Handbook offers unrivalled coverage of administrative law, including, but not confined to, the work of the Administrative Court and its procedures. Once again completely revised and up-dated, the sixth edition approximates to a restatement of the law of judicial review, organised around 63 legal principles, each supported by a comprehensive presentation of the sources and an unequalled selection of reported case quotations. It also includes essential procedural rules, forms and guidance issued by the Administrative Court. As in the previous edition, both the Civil Procedure Rules and Human Rights Act 1998 feature prominently as major influences on the shaping of the case-law. Their impact, and the plethora of cases which explore their meaning and application, were fully analysed and evaluated in the previous edition, but this time around their importance has grown exponentially and is reflected in even greater attention being given to their respective roles. Attention is also given to another new development - the coming into existence of the Supreme Court. Here Michael Fordham casts an experienced eye over the Court's work in the area of judicial review, and assesses the early signs from a Court that is expected to be one of the key influences in the development of judicial review in the modern era. The author, a leading member of the English public law bar, has been involved in many of the leading judicial review cases in recent years and is the founding editor of the Judicial Review journal. "...an institution for those who practise public law...it has the authority that comes from being compiled by an author of singular distinction". (Lord Woolf, from the Foreword to the Fifth Edition)

Judicial Recusal

The doctrine of judicial recusal enables - and may require - a judge who is lawfully appointed to hear and determine a case to stand down from that case, leaving its disposition to another colleague or colleagues. The subject is one of considerable import and moment, not only to 'insiders' in the judiciary, but also to litigants and their lawyers. Understanding the principles which guide recusal is also to understand the fundamentals of judging in the common law tradition. The subject is therefore of considerable interest both at practical and theoretical levels, for it tells us most of what we need to know about what it means "to be a judge" and what the discharge of that constitutional duty entails. Unsurprisingly therefore, the subject has attracted controversy, and some of the most savage criticisms ever directed at particular judges. The book commences with an introduction which is followed by an analysis of the essential features of the law, the legal principles (common-law origins, the law today in the USA, UK and Commonwealth) and the difficulties which currently arise in the cases and by operation of statute. The third part looks at process, including waiver, necessity, appellate review, and final appeals. Three specific problem areas (judicial misconduct in court, prior viewpoints, and unconcious bias) are then discussed. The book ends with the author's reflections on future developments and possible reforms of recusal law.

Judicial Review Of National Security

In recent years, countries around the world introduced numerous national security programs and military campaigns. Despite the complex legal questions they raise, very few of these measures have been the subject of rigorous judicial review. Nevertheless, the absence of real-time review has had an enormous effect on human rights, rule of law, and on national security. The Supreme Court of Israel provides an excellent case study of a different approach, which allows judges to assess military action in real-time and to issue non-binding results of their evaluation. This raises the question: How was the Court actually able to uphold this challenge? In Judicial Review of National Security, David Scharia explains how the Supreme Court of Israel developed unconventional judicial review tools and practices that allowed it to provide judicial guidance to the Executive in real-time. In this book, he argues that courts could play a much more dominant role in reviewing national security, and demonstrates the importance of intensive real-time inter-branch dialogue with the Executive, as a tool used by the Israeli Court to provide such review. This book aims to show that if one Supreme Court was able to provide rigorous judicial review of national security in real-time, then we should reconsider the conventional wisdom regarding the limits of judicial review of national security.

At each of its great historical junctures, Russia has undergone major legal reforms, without ever truly establishing "the rule of law". We are witnessing another such critical period now, and the endpoint is not yet clearly defined. Is Russia evolving a Western-style legal order, or should we expect to see new variations on the established pattern -- politically dominated legal system valuing outcomes over procedures, tolerating the expedient use of extralegal means of coercion, and fostering extrajudicial forms of conflict resolution? This volume measures Russian legal reform in relation to the rule-of-law ideal, but, more than that, it examines the legal institutions, culture, and reform goals that have actually prevailed in Russia. Judgments about future prospects are measured against two starting points, 1914 and 1991, adding new dimensions to our understanding of the Soviet legacy. The international group of contributors -- including Sergei Kazantsev, Girish Bhat, Cathy Frierson, Jane Burbank, Golfo Alexopoulos, Gapor Rittersporn, Yoram Gorlizki, Gordon Smith, Eugene Huskey, Robert Sharlet, and Sarah Reynolds -- bring to this endeavor a range of disciplinary methods and expertise on law and justice in tsarist, Soviet, and post-Soviet Russia.
