Product Description


This text examines concerns such as how issues relating to risks can be dealt with by means of legal processes, and how risks can be controlled through different legal designs and techniques. The five core concerns relating to risk are outlined: defining risk; types of risk; the perception and assessment of risks; risks, information, and democratic processes; and managing risks. A wide range of risk issues as they arise in legal contexts are examined, ranging from the problems of assessing risks within the criminal justice system, to the difficulties that judges encounter in processing risk-laden issues through the courts.
