Twining and Miers examines the basic intellectual skills law students need, in particular those concerning the handling of rules. Designed to cater for the needs of a variety of groups, including 'pre-law', first year LLB students reading courses in legal method, and those studying jurisprudence options with an interpretation/legal reasoning basis, it has wide appeal and provides a general overview of the subject. The new edition brings the reader up to date with changes in the law and involves more emphasis on the EU and legislation, with new examples and exercises.
