Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"After taking the 60 seconds to register on a platform site ( and an extra 20 seconds to enter the unique code, I had, what most would consider, the best online comparison resource available from any publisher.
The highlight and note feature is an innovation as it allows the reader to add information to the highlighted area-I have personal experience of highlighting passages of my text books and have no idea why, with this feature, that problem is solved." Steven Rogers, LLB Student, The University of South Wales

"Barnett is based on high academic standards while being easy to read and to understand … it is the perfect introductory text." Alexander Fischer, Lecturer in Law, SOAS, University of London

"Clear, detailed and thorough … students really enjoy this textbook and I strongly recommend it." Javier Oliva, Lecturer in Law, Bangor University

"Complete, precise and clear … extremely suitable." Caroline Fournet, Lecturer in Law, University of Exeter

"Utterly reliable." Nick Howard, Senior Lecturer in Law, University of Glamorgan

"The book is authoritative, thorough, well structured, clear and coherent." Philip Jones, Senior Lecturer in Law, University of the West of England

"..a sophisticated blend of legal material and theoretical ideas." David Radlett, Lecturer in Law, University of Kent

"I was surprised by how useful the eTextbook was. In the past I've always neglected these resources in favour of sticking to the pages in front of me. However, the options given to highlight, comment and search the book are too good to miss out on... As for the textbook itself, it is one that you can feel confident in; it covers the important public law concepts in detail, whilst still being clear and concise." Natalie Hearn, The Student Lawyer
