Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"As with all the Routledge text books, this particular title is probably the best on the market as an introduction to the way in which our legal system operates in England and Wales and the ‘self-testing’ throughout with the various activities will assist the student with a measure of progress as the course develops. We also consider that this book has a much wider potential readership for anyone interested in the development of this topical law area." - Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers
