This title covers a dedicated mailing and e-mail campaign to targeted law related media and organisations. Based on the famous "Hamlyn Lecture Series in England", the new "McPherson Lecture" series will host a celebrated international scholar/legal expert to deliver a series of 3 lectures. These three gripping essays look at the legal issues and ramifications of identity theft and financial fraud. The first essay considers fraudulent impersonation, its escalation and its effect on contract in the modern era as transactions become increasingly reliant on pins, codes, and account numbers.In the second essay, "Villainy in Venice", he takes Shakespeare's classic play, "The Merchant of Venice", and deconstructs the pivotal trial scene in which Portia, posing as a judge, uses adversarial techniques to decide the case. He discusses how the law of contract and equity is manipulated by Portia when determining the outcome of the now oft-quoted 'pound of flesh' bond. In the third essay, Lord Millett examines the nature of circular financial transactions and traces the case law from early years to modern times.
