Earlier this year we asked all readers to participate in a survey of the different
elements of the journal to help us to know which sections you most valued
and to suggest developments. We are introducing some changes and you
should begin to notice them with this issue. There will not be radical change,
as the existing content of the journal was generally well liked, but we hope
that the developments we introduce will make the journal more useful and
interesting to you. At the same time, a number of long-standing members of
the Editorial Board are taking a well-deserved rest. I would like to express my
thanks to Graeme Broadbent, Vera Bermingham, Pam Carter, Christopher Gale
and Sarah Nield, all of whom have provided me with real support. I would like
to make special mention of Graeme Broadbent who has acted as Book Reviews
Editor (with support from Vera Bermingham in the early years) since 1994.
Graeme's work has been unstinting and he has commissioned and edited sev-
eral hundred reviews over the years. That deserves thanks from all of us. The
place of retiring members is taken by new colleagues: Chris Ashford, Alison
Bone, Hugo De Rijke, Jessica Guth and Richard Owen, some of whom have
already taken on specific responsibilities. Policy and Education Developments
has been taken over by Richard Owen. He has provided an overview of where
we find ourselves at the end of the first decade of this century and plans to
build on that in the next two issues of 2010. Richard takes over from Tracey
Varnava who has edited this section for eight years. I would like to thank
Tracey for her hard work over this period and am delighted that she is continu-
ing to serve on the Editorial Board. Legal Developments is changing its focus
in line with the simplification of its title. There may continue to be short notes
on individual case law and statutory developments. However, its major focus is
planned to be overviews of particular areas of law, addressed with the needs
of the law teacher in mind. In this issue Michael Jefferson uses the advent of
the Equality Bill to review developments in discrimination and equality law
and to look critically at how the new Bill will address the major criticisms of the
law to date. Alison Bone takes over as Learning Resources Reviews Editor with
the assistance of Chris Ashford who plans to reflect the change in title by
developing a series of reviews on non-book resources. We have in mind the
growing resources available (some free, others for payment) on the Internet
which are becoming more a feature of our and our students' reading and
research. As these are not marketed like books it would be useful if you were
