English Legal System in Context 6e

Sixth Edition

Fiona Cownie, Anthony Bradney, and Mandy Burton

  • The authors provide a unique perspective on the English Legal System, encouraging students to critically analyze the subject.
  • Frequent examples are incorporated throughout the text, helping to explain the link between theory and practice.
  • The text covers a wide range of key areas, such as the courts, case law, alternative dispute resolution and the Human Rights Act, while remaining engaging and concise.

New to this Edition:

  • Additional introductory material has been incorporated into the earlier chapters, along with extra diagrams, to give a more carefully-graded learning curve
  • The section on Alternative Dispute Resolution has been fully revised and updated, to take into account recent changes in the law
  • New material on appeals has been added to the crown court chapter, so that it maps more closely to undergraduate courses
