Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description:

An engaging introduction to one of the most complex areas of modern life. The book introduces both the main components of the legal system - including judges, juries and law-makers - and key areas of law - contract, civil negligence, and criminal law - to provide the uninitiated with an ideal introduction to law. Key questions to be considered include:

  • How are laws made?
  • How do judges decide cases?
  • What is the exact role of the EU in the legal system?
  • What are your rights and duties under contract law?
  • What is a crime and what are criminal defences?

Throughout the book, a wide range of contemporary cases are examined to relate key legal concepts to familiar examples and real world situations.
