- What's Wrong with Legal Aid? Lessons from Outside the UK (with A. Whyte)
Published: Civil Justice Quarterly, 2006
Summary: The UK spends more per capita on legal aid than any other country in the world, yet appears to reap little benefit from the expenditure in terms of reduction of criminality or disputes. Much of the drive towards spending seems to derive from lawyer generated demand. The paper examines possible ways of improving results and reducing expenditures by looking at examples from other countries.

- Trials of Strength: The Reconfiguration of Litigation as a Contested Terrain (with A. Boon)
Published: Law and Society Review, 1999
Summary: A market for litigation for solicitor-advocates in competition with barristers was introduced by the British government. The take-up by solicitors of these new rights of audience in the higher courts was less than expected. This paper examines four fields of practice - corporate, criminal defence, personal injury, and immigration - and shows how the market cannot be treated as a uniform field and that each field has its own culture that might be receptive or not to fresh ideas that disturb the status quo. Moreover, it shows that Abbott's argument that jurisdictional battles mainly occur at the margins of a profession's remit may need to be modified. The turf war between barristers and solicitors in litigation is taking place within the core activity of legal practice not at the margin.
