An Introduction to Law

February 28, 2008

For those new to the study of law, this is a clear, comprehensive and extremely interesting account of the basics of the English legal system and several key foundation subjects. Unlike many introductory texts that focus solely on the law, this book introduces the reader to the historical, economic and contextual factors that helped shape our legal system. It deserves a wide audience.

Who is it for? Primarily first-year undergraduates or non-law students who are studying a legal subject and require introductory material.

Presentation: Well written and easy to understand, it will provide students with a sound foundation of key legal topics.

Would you recommend it? Highly recommended.
