English Legal System Directions

Second Edition

Steve Wilson, Rebecca Mitchell, Tony Storey, and Natalie Wortley

  • Directions covers the core areas of the English legal system on introductory undergraduate courses, combining an engaging approach with plenty of learning features to make this an ideal text for those new to the subject
  • The text includes numerous learning features in each chapter, such as chapter objectives, case summaries, thinking points, chapter summaries, and further reading suggestions, to offer students a high level of support and encourage them to check their understanding of the basic facts and principles
  • Offers a clear and reliable basis for students to understand the key principles of this fundamental topic, on which they can build during the course of their legal studies
  • An Online Resource Center provides a wide range of extra resources to further support the student in their studies, including 150 multiple-choice questions, assessment questions, and practical examples, advice on approaching the study of the English legal system, and updates on legislation, case law and other source materials
  • The second edition of English Legal System Directions has been thoroughly revised to reflect all recent developments in the law since the publication of the first edition
  • The material in chapter one has been carefully reworked to provide a succinct overview of the subject, introducing fundamental concepts such as the nature of law, legal institutions, disputes and the courts. This allows students to appreciate the scope of the subject and to contextualise the more detailed chapters that follow
  • The book now includes an interesting and thought-provoking new chapter on the law and institutions of the European Union, to reflect that the EU is very much a part of the English legal system
  • The innovative 'Thinking Points' feature has been developed and expanded throughout the book to challenge students to analyse the legal system and make their own judgement on how the system operates
