The Taylor Library book-sale is currently on and will continue until Friday 6th October. There’s still plenty of interesting titles available so if you haven’t had a look yet, make sure you do before next Friday!
Hi! I’m Janet MacKay, the Information Consultant for Law. I’m here to support the students and staff in the School of Law. I qualified as a librarian in 2003, and have been a member of the Teaching, Liaison & Consultancy team in the University of Aberdeen’s library since 2011.
The best way to contact me is by email as I am often teaching or at meetings. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. I work in The Sir Duncan Rice Library (SDRL) for part of the week as I am also the Information Consultant for the Business School – my office in SDRL is on Floor 4. If you have any questions, please get in touch. If I’m in my office in Taylor Library, just knock! It’s the room with the ‘Librarian’s Office’ notice on the door.
If you are a new student, we’ll be meeting in workshops where I’ll be teaching you how to find the literature to support your studies and beyond.
See you soon!

Failure to flourish: how law undermines family relationships
Oxford : Oxford University Press, c2014
“Exploring the connection between families and inequality, Failure to Flourish: How Law Undermines Family Relationships argues that the legal regulation of families stands fundamentally at odds with the needs of families. Strong, stable, positive relationships are essential for both individuals and society to flourish, but from transportation policy to the criminal justice system, and from divorce rules to the child welfare system, the legal system makes it harder for parents to provide children with these kinds of relationships, exacerbating the growing inequality in America” (OUP)
Tallinn manual 2.0 on the international law applicable to cyber operations
Michael N. Schmitt (ed)
Cambridge : Cambridge University Press, 2017
“The focus of the original Manual was on the most severe cyber operations, those that violate the prohibition of the use of force in international relations, entitle states to exercise the right of self-defence, and/or occur during armed conflict. Tallinn Manual 2.0 adds a legal analysis of the more common cyber incidents that states encounter on a day-to-day basis and that fall below the thresholds of the use of force or armed conflict.
The expanded edition of the Tallinn Manual, like its predecessor, represents the views of its authors, and not of NATO, the NATO CCD COE, its Sponsoring Nations, or any other entity. ” (CCDCOE)
The UK and European human rights: a strained relationship?
Katja S. Ziegler (ed)
Oxford : Hart Pub., 2015
“The UK’s engagement with the legal protection of human rights at a European level has been, at varying stages, pioneering, sceptical and antagonistic. The UK government, media and public opinion have all at times expressed concerns about the growing influence of European human rights law, particularly in the controversial contexts of prisoner voting and deportation of suspected terrorists as well as in the context of British military action abroad. British politicians and judges have also, however, played important roles in drafting, implementing and interpreting the European Convention on Human Rights. Its incorporation into domestic law in the Human Rights Act 1998 intensified the ongoing debate about the UK’s international and regional human rights commitments. Furthermore, the increasing importance of the European Union in the human rights sphere has added another layer to the relationship and highlights the complex relationship(s) between the UK government, the Westminster Parliament and judges in the UK, Strasbourg and Luxembourg.
The book analyses the topical and contentious issue of the relationship between the UK and the European systems for the protection of human rights (ECHR and EU) from doctrinal, contextual and comparative perspectives and explores factors that influence the relationship of the UK and European human rights.” (Hart Pub)
