                                  Welcome to the IALS Student Law Review






Welcome to the latest issue of the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies Student Law Review
(ISLRev).

The ISLRev is moving forward towards establishing its aims of publishing scholarly legal material that
effectively reflects fresh perspectives on a plethora of issues and in an equally diverse number of
jurisdictions. It is my honour to be part of the new Editorial board to facilitate the ISLRev in achieving
its aims.

This issue of the ISLRev I trust will continue in the trend of encouraging intellectual engagement in
relevant issues touching us personally as individuals and as part of the wider society. On the
individualistic perspective, there are articles on human rights which critically evaluates the
effectiveness of the significance of the new legislative measures in the United Kingdom; the
differences in effectiveness between the United Kingdom and that of the United States on specific
areas of human rights; and issues relating to victims of crimes. The articles do this whilst touching on
jurisdictional comparisons on these themes. On the societal front the ISLRev takes us to Pakistan and
considers the duties of a corporate entity in society.

I trust that there are no doubts that these are interesting and current issues that I hope will encourage
further analysis and possibly even fodder for further articles that the ISLRev can serve to publish!

In this issue:

Rehmat Ali takes us to Pakistan and considers the inefficiencies of legislation on the key issues of
the potential for abuse of the separate legal entity and/or the doctrine of limited liability; and the
current issue of social, economic and environmental responsibilities of corporate entities within the
specific sphere of the Single Member Company (SMC). In his consideration Rehmat poses key
questions such as; whether there still remains potential for the single members forming a SMC to
escape the corporate liability under the SMC guide?; and what sort of duties can be performed by
the SMC in the society. These are questions that are keenly in line with global modern thoughts on
the development of the functions of the corporate entity not just in Pakistan.

Naomh Gibson considers some valuable points whilst critically evaluating the relatively modern and
nebulous concept of privacy using a perspective from feminist legal theory modern age, such as
concepts of sexual information; confidence and intimacy with an aim to reconceptualise privacy.

Natalie Kyneswood brings us home to the United Kingdom to consider a key issue that directly
affects us as individuals and citizens of the United Kingdom by discussing the reasons behind the
perceived unpopularity of the Human Rights Act 1998 and commenting on the value of the UK
Government's proposals to introduce an alternative British Bill of Rights and Responsibilities. In her
discussion, Natalie, touches and concludes on the salient issue of whether human rights law is
international in nature. The answer to which is worth the journey through this article.

Sara Moynihan keeps us in the United Kingdom but touches on jurisdictional comparison with the
United States and some parts of Europe, specifically on the issue of meaningful participation [of the
victim of an alleged crime] at the trial stage of the criminal justice process. Specifically, the article
critically evaluates how victim participation in the criminal justice process has the potential to
