With a pedigree extending over eleven editions, students can be sure that Walker and Walker's English Legal System provides an excellent grounding in the English legal system.

The book covers all areas commonly taught on undergraduate courses, with a focus on judicial and legislative developments.

The eleventh edition has been substantially revised to ensure an even closer fit to courses, including the introduction of a new opening chapter to provide a clear overview of the subject. 'Key issues' boxes have been added to highlight key debates, and thought-provoking questions help students to think critically about the issues.

This edition further benefits from a fresh new text design, making the book even easier to use.
