Legal Systems & Skills

Third Edition

Edited by Scott Slorach, Judith Embley, Peter Goodchild, and Catherine Shephard

  • A truly innovative solution: the only textbook to fully combine material on both legal systems and legal skills; parts I and II give students a thorough understanding of essential concepts and skills
  • Supports students' professional development - as well as their academic development - through an additional focus on commercial awareness and employability; part III focuses on developing employability skills and honing transferable skills
  • Provides a much more holistic and contemporary understanding of the purpose and practical application of law than is usually found in textbooks on this subject; students are guided through life as a professional and through the economic and political events influencing the legal profession
  • Demonstrates step-by-step approaches to core legal skills which students can employ both in their legal studies and in subsequent employment; a wide range of features and annotated documents help students to reflect on their progress and see legal skills in practice
