The English Legal System Sourcebook" has handpicked the essential cases, statutes and other sources for Legal System students. It will save time by eliminating the need to spend hours in the law library or on electronic databases looking for the relevant material.

It has been designed to be more concise and user-friendly than other cases and materials books, with the same clear style and layout that has made the Elliott and Quinn textbooks so popular.

Key features include: materials are organized by topics covered in most undergraduate course syllabi, making it easy to match materials to lectures and tutorials; topical and recent material and cases are included, which means that readers will find the subject easier to engage with and relate to; historically important decisions are also included where appropriate; clear colour design enables readers to quickly and easily navigate through the various cases and materials; companion website includes questions and discussion points relating to the extracts for use in tutorials, regular case and legislation updates, web-links, and a glossary; the book is designed to be used as a resource in its own right or alongside Catherine Elliott and Frances Quinn's "English Legal System" core textbook.
