The second cumulative supplement to this first point of reference on English private law covers all developments in the key areas of this subject up to January 2004. It will be an essential purchase for all who already own the main work, as it maintains the currency of the two-volume main work itself. Edited by the Regius Professor of Civil Law and Oxford University, Peter Birks, each updating section is written by an acknowledged expert, bringing to bear their experience and understanding to provide a clear distillation and analysis of the relevant subject.

The format of the supplement complements the main work, with chapters grouped into five main parts: sources of law, law of persons, law of property, law of obligations, and litigation.
