Hanford on Lord Campbell and the Fatal Accidents Act

Peter Handford, University of Western Australia Faculty of Law, has posted Lord Campbell and the Fatal Accidents Act, which appears in Law Quarterly Review 129 (21013): 420.  Here is the abstract:    
The object of this article is to examine the events that led to the creation of the Fatal Accidents Act and Lord Campbell’s part in them. It will therefore first briefly review his life and career, and then look in more detail at the old law, its replacement by the new law contained in the Fatal Accidents Act, and the extent of the reform.
