The Companion draws upon the expertise of over 700 scholars and practitioners, offering the widest possible range of perspectives on legal topics. Consisting in over 1700 alphabetically-arranged entries, the Companion features:-

  • Leading cases, famous trials and distinguished lawyers, past and present

  • Major events in legal history and major debates in legal theory

  • Twenty pages of rich illustrations, bringing the content to life
