Article Summary

Once said by the criminologist Sir Leon Radzinowicz to have been ‘Jeremy Bentham’s only legitimate descendant’, Glanville Williams was one of the best known and most prolific and astringent academic lawyers of his generation. His principal concern lay in the critical analysis of the rules of English law, but he also did pioneering work in both legal philosophy (anticipating in several key respects the work of H.L.A. Hart) and medical and bio-ethics.
