Smith, Bailey & Gunn on the Modern English Legal System is widely regarded as the leading work on the subject. It provides a lucid and wide-ranging account of the English Legal System covering both the institutions, personnel and procedures, and the handling of case law and statutes.

The text is accompanied by sample court forms, tables of essential statistics and flow charts illustrating the court structures. Reference is also made to the results of empirical research on the operation of the legal system, as well as to legal rules. The fourth edition has been thoroughly revised and updated to include many new developments including:-

  • The implementation of the Human Rights Act 1998
  • The fundamental reforms of civil procedure
  • The remodelling of arrangements for publicly funded legal services
  • The numerous and far reaching reforms of criminal justice
  • The recommendations of the Auld Review
Although primarily aimed at undergraduate students, Smith, Bailey & Gunn remains the ideal textbook for anyone seeking a comprehensive examination of the modern English Legal System.
