To mark the publication of the Fourth Edition of Wilmot-Smith on Construction Contracts published by OUP, 39 Essex Chambers hosted an informal webinar looking at the trials and challenges of publishing and editing legal texts focussing on the new title.
Richard Wilmot-Smith QC and I join a conversation with Lord Justice Coulson (Author of Coulson on Adjudication also published by OUP and now in its 4th Edition) and Michael McParland QC (Author – the Rome 1 Regulation on the Law Applicable to Contractual Obligations OUP). Kindly moderating the session is Mrs Justice Jefford.
The conversation will discuss the trials and tribulations of writing and updating legal text books. It will start with discussion about how you start a book. Then we examine how you write it and then move on how you then update and develop it. The authors share their experiences, good bad and, hopefully, amusing.
