Law is one of the most important but impenetrable subjects. It affects us all. It protects us from crime. It provides us with consumer rights. It tells us what happens to our property if we get divorced and when we die. So, of course, it’s going to be complex. And expensive when you need advice. But wouldn’t you like to know a bit about it? So that you don’t feel quite so stupid when faced with a legal issue or legal language? Maybe you’d like to be a lawyer. But will you like it? Before you sign up to do a law degree, wouldn’t it be helpful to know a little bit about it? Because – and this is typical of law – universities don’t like you to have done any before you do law with them. So you can’t find out beforehand. Maybe you would have liked to have been a lawyer but never had the chance. You can still learn about it now. Maybe you’d like to be able to get better value from your lawyer when you next talk to him or her because you’ll have a better grasp of the terminology they use, so you’ll understand more and it will take less time – which may even reduce the size of your legal bill. Wouldn’t that be nice? If any of these questions resonate with you, you’re in the right place. This book tells you what the law is and why.
