In the first article on Modernising the Monarchy - in Legal Terms published in this journal in 2010 it was asserted that legislation relating to: old forms of royal taxes, rights to whales and sturgeon and restrictions concerning Crown land when it was part of the royal demesne, were obsolete and should be repealed. This article considers further legislation relating to: billeting, martial law, gold and silver mines and the need for the consent of the sovereign to certain royal marriages. It is asserted that this legislation should also be repealed, not being consonant with the social conditions of today. Further, that legislation concerning the death (demise) of the sovereign should be modernised.
Until 2007 the King's Law Journal was known as the King's College Law Journal. It was established in 1990 as a legal periodical publishing scholarly and authoritative Articles, Notes and Reports on legal issues of current importance to both academic research and legal practice. It has a national and international readership, and publishes refereed contributions from authors across the United Kingdom, from continental Europe and further afield (particularly Commonwealth countries and USA). The journal includes a Reviews section containing critical notices of recently published books.
