The Denning Interviews
Lord Denning is possibly the best-known and one of the most highly-regarded jurists of the 20th Century. He is also one of the most distinguished authors ever to write for Butterworths in its 200 year history. In 1984, Lord Denning was interviewed by 3 eminent academics, Professor William Wade, Professor John Smith and Professor Stephen Cretney. In these interviews, Lord Denning discussed his most famous cases and the reasons for the judgments he made, that helped define the law of England and Wales. He also looked forward and talked about how he thought that family law, contract and equity and administrative law should develop in the years to come. LexisNexis has joined forces with current senior academics to discuss whether Lord Denning is as relevant today as he was thirty years ago. You will also discover whether Lord Denning’s views on how the law should develop have actually come to pass. We hope you enjoy watching Lord Denning ‘in his own words’.
Lord Denning’s career saw enormous changes in society’s attitude to the family and to the problems of arising on marital breakdown. In these interviews he gave a – sometimes very frank – account of how the law responded to these changes.

Our ‘day in the life’ section will provide you with videos of ex-law students discussing their career choices, giving you an insight into what life in the workplace is really like so that you can make informed choices about your future career. If you have any job options you would like to know more about get in touch and we will try to arrange the interview you would like to see.
