The Unlocking the Law series is designed specifically to make the law accessible. Each chapter opens with aims and objectives, contains activities such as quick quizzes and self-test questions, key facts charts to consolidate your knowledge and diagrams to aid learning.

Cases and judgments are prominently displayed, as are primary source quotations. There are summaries to check your understanding of each chapter, a glossary of legal terminology and essay questions with answer plans. All titles in the series follow the same formula and include the same features so students can move easily from one subject to another.
