The third edition of this leading textbook provides a lively and readable general introduction to English law, its definition, historical and literary sources. It provides an outline of the English legal system followed by chapters on the main areas of substantive law.

The new edition contains recent examination questions from the syllabuses of the main GCSE Law examining boards (for example, SEG, NEAB and the WJEC). The book is renowned as a very approachable introduction to the law, containing photographs and authentic documents to help give the law a real world feel. This approach has proved popular with students as it gives the subject a more immediate relevance.

Key Features: entirely up-to-date with recent case law and legislation; each theoretical point is immediately backed up with fact; contains recent exam questions from main GCSE examining boards; written in a lively, readable style.
