Law for the Layperson: Life, Work & Death is an easy to read, accessible reference book which seeks to inform the reader on a wide variety of legal issues that they may encounter in their day-to-day lives. When a legal matter arises oftentimes a person is confronted by a bewildering array of legal concepts, procedures or complex jargon and are at a loss to understand what is going on. The purpose of this book is to simplify such complexities and multi-layered rules and provide quick solutions to various queries that may arise.

The approach taken by the author is to provide an everyday query formulated much like a question one might find in a self-help legal column in a newspaper. A detailed answer follows, highlighting the general issues that the reader should be aware of and what steps they might take next. Everyday topics such as buying or selling a house, making a will, probate, family law queries, personal injuries, negligence, employment law, consumer law and defamation are addressed. Law for the Layperson: Life, Work & Death will be an invaluable reference book for all non-lawyers seeking guidance as required on legal issues.
