Editor’s note
The case comments in the first part of this issue arose out of the sudden flood of very
important cases in spring 2011, including the Supreme Court case Global Process
Systems Inc & Anor v Syarikat Takaful Malaysia Berhad [2011] UKSC 5 on
causation and the Court of Appeal case Masefield AG v Amlin Corporate Member
Ltd & Anor [2011] EWCA Civ 24 on insurance cover for losses by piracy. This
generated a natural setting for an essay competition among the LLM students. The
students were invited to comment on any recent case, with the above two
representing the bulk of the resulting submissions. The terms of the competition
were that brief and clear case summaries would be just as welcome as submissions
containing more ambitious analysis. This issue of SSLR contains case comments
representing both types of submissions and a spectrum in between, each worth
reading on its own merits. The articles in the second part of the issue are some
excellent examples of work arising in other ways out of the LLM course.
Most of the authors were at the time of writing LLM students at the University of
Southampton Law School, with just one exception noted on that article.
