Adam Wagner appointed as Consultant Editor for new Halsbury’s Laws Prisons Volume

We are delighted to announce that Adam Wagner has been appointed as Consultant Editor of the new Prisons edition of Halsbury’s Laws of England, due in 2020.

Adam has extensive experience of prison law and regularly acts in Judicial Review claims relating to parole, conditions of detention, custodial violence and human rights. He also regularly acts in coronial inquests for the families of those who have lost their lives whilst in prison.

Adam says: “Prison law is one of the most important and fastest moving areas of public and human rights law. The huge cuts in the prisons budget in recent years have led to a growth in violence and deaths in prison and it is more important as ever that the law is well understood. I have always been an avid user of Halsbury’s Laws and I am delighted to be working with Lexis Nexis on the new edition of this prestigious title”.

Halsbury’s Laws of England is the only comprehensive narrative statement of the law of England and Wales, containing law derived from every source.
