Please note (June 2010: that these law-bytes will soon (but not very soon and slowly) be re-organised, and re-posted within the main law-blog. This will allow much more powerful crosslinking for users between the various pages. All the existing pages will be left in place, but only the replacements will be updated. Eventually all the old pages will become ‘redirects’.
