As the pace of legislative change at all levels continues to accelerate, it becomes increasingly difficult for practitioners to know how to follow and apply, and sometimes influence or challenge, the legislation that is relevant to their clients in every area of the law.

A highly practical resource, Craies provides clear and concise answers to the most common questions users of legislation have.  It aims to be an essential everyday guide covering primary legislation, subordinate legislation and devolved legislation, as well as EU legislation.  Craies is relied upon by practitioners in all fields, and is regularly cited in the higher courts.
