As the first part of the Black Letter series of books, The Case Law Compendium was the brainchild of an author who having studied law at a Cambridge university, realised that the primary ingredient for knowledgeable and capable law students is the simplification of case law.
Written in a way designed to instill confidence in those new to this demanding subject, the author has meticulously analysed hundreds of leading English and European cases, over thousands of pages of complex judicial text, so as to create a study support resource that will accompany the reader throughout their entire degree course.
With over 150 popular case studies across Constitutional & Administrative Law, Contract Law, Criminal Law, Equity and Trust Law, European Law, Family Law, Medical Law, Property (Land) Law and Tort Law, each case is complete with hand-selected and fully OSCOLA referenced, key citations ready for insertion into chosen coursework.
While these citations encourage the cohesive presentation of academic work, their footnote to this easily digestible text also expedites learning, improves grade averages and allows for confident discussion in group environments.
This unprecedented partnering culminates in an essential study support resource, that while invaluable to undergraduates everywhere, remains a critical reference point for those navigating their academic or legal careers.
Be sure to look out for future volumes from Black Letter Publishing, as a number of additional cases and legal fields will be explored as the series develops.
About the Author
This realisation and sense of personal fulfilment undoubtedly founded the writing and publication of 'The Case Law Compendium' a textual manifestation of Neil's passion for writing, researching and sharing all forms of legal insight to those who appreciate law and jurisprudence in it's written form. It is also a firmly held conviction that law can be freed from its traditional complications and taught to an international audience with effect. This is realised with the release of his first book and there is no doubt that there will be more volumes of work to follow. It is the hope of this author that those buying this debut publication will take as much enjoyment from reading it as was taken in its preparation.
Neil has recently enrolled on a 'Master of Laws' LL.M programme at the prestigious University of East Anglia and aims to firmly secure himself in the research (and possibly teaching) field of international law, while continuing to publish books around the subject of law.
