The 17th edition of Slapper and Kelly’s The English Legal System explains and critically assesses how our law is made and applied. Trusted by generations of academics and students, this authoritative textbook clearly describes the legal rules of England and Wales and their collective influence as a sociocultural institution.

This latest edition of The English Legal System has been substantially updated to include changes to the civil and criminal justice systems, changes in legal funding, developments in European law, and recent applications of human rights law.

Key learning features include:-

  • useful chapter summaries which act as a good check point for students
  • ‘food for thought’ questions at the end of each chapter to prompt critical thinking and reflection
  • sources for further reading and suggested websites at the end of each chapter to point students towards further learning pathways;
  • an online skills network including how tos, practical examples, tips, advice and interactive examples of English law in action.
Relied upon by generations of students, Slapper and Kelly’s The English Legal System 2016-2017 is a permanent fixture in this ever-evolving subject.
