The English Legal System combines comprehensive and thorough coverage of the main topics covered on English legal system courses with a lively and engaging style to capture students' attention and provide them with a firm foundation for their study of law.

This book enables students to first understand all of the key areas of the English legal system, and then to engage with the subject fully for themselves. The law is not just presented but critiqued, with a range of learning features which encourage students to actively engage with contentious issues and difficult questions.

Everyday examples help students to apply their knowledge of the law in a practical way, while questions for reflection help students to analyse, evaluate, and think critically.

Aided by a clear structure, arranged in five parts, students will be able to fully grasp the processes involving in making and reforming the law.
