Today, the UK is a deeply unequal society.
This lecture critically evaluates the relationship between English law and capitalism and explores how legal changes over the past 30 years, such as deregulating the housing market and weakening trade unions, have widened wealth inequality.
The lecture examines the role of lawyers in addressing these issues.
