Jonathan Herring has written on criminal, family and medical law. He focuses on how the law interacts with the important things in life: not money, companies or insurance; but love, friendship and intimacy. In his work he seeks to develop ways in the law can recognise and value the goods in activities such as carework and sex, while protecting people from the harms that so often result. Family Law Jonathan Herring has written a popular textbook in this subject and has edited several books on theoretical issues in family law. He was written on domestic abuse, children’s rights and nature of marriage. He is an editor for the Child and Family Law Quarterly. Medical Law Jonathan Herring has written a leading textbook on this subject. He has written on the regulation of pregnancy and enforced medical treatment. He has also co-authored with Dr P-L Chau a series of papers on the medical and legal definition of sex, with particular consideration of intersex people. Criminal Law Jonathan Herring has written two best-selling textbooks on criminal law. He has researched the law on sexual offences, crimes against corpses and failures of parents to protect children from death. Elder Law Jonathan Herring has written a leading monograph on the law’s treatment of older people. He has also published on legal issues surrounding dementia. Care Law Jonathan Herring has written a monograph on the law’s treatment of caring and how adopting an ethic of care could transform the law. Law and Vulnerability is the subject of his recent book.
- This book explores the intersecting issues relating the phenomenon of ageing to gender and family law. The latter has tended to focus mainly on family life in young and middle age; and, indeed, the issues of childhood and parenting are key in many family law texts. Family life for older members has, then, been largely neglected; addressing this neglect, the current volume explores how the issues which might be important for younger people are not necessarily the same as those for older people. The significance of family, the nature of family life, and the understanding of self in terms of one’s relationships, tend to change over the life course. For example, the state may play an increasing role in the lives of older people – as access to services, involvement in work and the community, the ability to live independently, and to form or maintain caring relationships, are all impacted by law and policy. This collection therefore challenges the standard models of family life and family law that have been developed within a child/parent-centred paradigm, and which may require rethinking in the turn to family life in old age. Interdisciplinary in its scope and orientation, this book will appeal not just to academic family lawyers and students interested in issues around family law, ageing, gender, and care; but also to sociologists and ethicists working in these areas.This article argues against the proposition that people should be denied medical treatment on the basis that they are responsible for their ill health. While it accepts that people can cause their own ill health, it argues that NHS staff are not in a position to determine the extent to which a person can be said to have contributed to their ill health in a blameworthy way. Further, that ill health is often a result of multiple causes, and it is unfair to isolate the patient to bear the costs. The article concludes by promoting a vision of relational health whereby we recognize our responsibilities to produce healthy communities and relationships.A discussion of legal and theological understandings of sex.Discussion of cross-examination of victims of domestic abuseDOI: http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s10691-017-9342-3In German, English translation available from author.Discussion of theories of autonomyA discussion of the nature of disability and parental responsibilities towards disabled children.Discussion of when FDR agreements must be followed at a final hearingDiscussion of contact cases where children refuse to see parentsThis article considers whether you can marry a robot.Discussion of Re W (A Child)  EWCA 772 and litigants in person in family law casesISBN: 9780198702276A textbook on professional ethics for lawyers.A discussion of posthumous parentingISBN: 9780198702269ISBN: 9781292012889A consideration of the disaiblity rights critique of an ethic of care.A discussion of Rapisarda v ColladonA discussion of the use of presumptions in interpreting the welfare principle in the Children Act 1989.Discussion of the nature of healthThis book explores at a theoretical and practical level the law's interaction with caring.ISBN: 9781849461061A discussion of whether unmarried cohabitants are discriminated against if treated unlike married couplesDiscussion of legal issues around immunization and childrenISBN: 13 9781137281395Discussion of Nicklinson and legal issues around end of lifeA discussion of the doctrine of double effectThis chapter critques the law and practices surrouding the use of surnames in marriage and for children.ISBN: 9789756760559A chapter analysing the Tyrell principle and generally cases where the victim has contributed to a crime against her/himselfISBN: 9781409453451Consideration of criminal responsibility for crimes committed by addicted people.A discussion of financial orders on dissolution of civil partnershipsText and materials on criminal lawISBN: 023001870XDiscussion of Re T (Children) on costs orders in family casesA discussion of the proposed reforms to the procedures on divorce, in the light of the work of Stephen Cretney's approach to the issueAn exploration of how a human rights approach might be used to combat elder abuse.Article on decision-makingA book on decision making techniquesInter-disciplinary collection of essays on intoxication.Textbook on medical law and ethicsISBN: 978-0-19-964640-1A discussion of the role vulnerability plays in the construction of childhood in the lawA discussion of the nature of welfare, best intersts and well being.Article on Re W and welfareConsideration of proposed reforms to the law on kidnapping.discussion of the right not to knowAn article discussing pre-nupsA chapter discussing the law on age discrimination and how that might develop.ISBN: 9780230240933discussion of Radmacher v GranatinoA book examining birth from a range of disciplines and perspectivesArticle discussing how cases involving chidlren with competing intersts should be dealt with.Article considering the case law on children's refusal of medical treatment.DOI: 9780415683050Textbook on criminal lawISBN: 97802302875729An article examining the causes of elder abuse and in particular the extent to which the stress suffered by carers leads to abuse.A discussion of major legal developments in family law in 2010.Textbook on family lawISBN: 9781408255520Collection of essays on key cases in family lawISBN: 9781849461016Textbook on medical lawISBN: 9780199492531
