Are judges morally accountable? Is legal validity value-free? Do animals have rights? These are some of the questions considered in this collection of essays. Moral problems, argues Professor Raymond Wacks, pervade the legal system, and he shows how the judicial function, the sources of legitimacy, and the protection of rights have an inescapable ethical dimension. The second part of the book focuses on the private domain and the legal concept of privacy. The extent to which the law ought to preserve a distinctly private realm is a pressing concern in our surveillance society in which personal information is increasingly collected, transferred, and stored. Professor Wacks, a leading expert in this field, is uniquely qualified to offer important insights into this controversial and difficult subject.
