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.
