Unlocking the English Legal System will help you grasp the main concepts of the legal system in England and Wales with ease.

Containing accessible explanations in clear and precise terms that are easy to understand, it provides an excellent foundation for learning and revising. This edition considers:-

  • recent case law and legislation as well as the outcome of the UK’s referendum on membership of the EU;
  • the decision of Willers v Joyce and its impact on the role of the Privy Council in the system of precedent;
  • the new Combined Family Court;
  • the Legal Education and Training review and changes to the profession;
  • and funding cuts to legal services and legal aid.
The Unlocking the Law series is designed specifically to make the law accessible. Each chapter opens with a list of aims and objectives, and contains diagrams to aid learning. Cases and judgments are prominently displayed, as are primary source quotations.

Summaries help check your understanding of each chapter, and there is a glossary of legal terminology. New features include problem-based questions with guidance on answering, as well as essay questions and answer plans, plus cases and materials exercises.

All titles in the series follow the same formula and include the same features so students can move easily from one subject to another. The series covers all the core subjects required by the Bar Council and the Law Society for entry onto professional qualifications as well as popular option units.
