This unique work provides an accessible first point of reference on English private law for lawyers in the UK and throughout the world. Packed within its 2,000 pages, users will find a lucid, concise yet immensely authoritative account of all of the key areas of private law.

Included in this three-volume set is the second cumulative supplement which brings the work completely up to date to January 2004.;Edited by the Regius Professor of Civil Law at Oxford University, Peter Birks, each 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.

Coverage is broad and carefully structured, with chapters grouped into five main parts: sources of law; law of persons; law of property; law of obligations; and litigation. In each case, leading experts expound the law in their own specialist area, for instance: Dr Stephen Cretney - Family Law; Professor W.R. Cornish - Intellectual Property; Professor Sir Guenter Treitel - Contract; Professor Mark Freedland - Employment; Professor Norman Palmer - Bailment; Professor Francis Reynolds - Agency,;and Carriage of Goods; Professor Peter Birks - Unjust Enrichment.

The format of the supplement complements the main work for ease of reference.;English Private Law is establishing itself as a cornerstone of all legal reference libraries, both practitioner and academic, in the UK and around the world. Practitioners rely upon it as an authoritative yet accessible first source of reference on substantive English law. Academics turn to it as a distillation of the learning of many of the leading English law scholars. Overseas lawyers find it a convenient 'one-stop' solution to their need for a holding on English law.
