Review from previous edition The Concentrate revision guide is an invaluable asset for every student. It is a one-stop resource that is more than just an ordinary revision guide. - Maroof Pirzada, law graduate, Nottingham Trent University

Great features which will certainly appeal to students preparing for exams such as the diagrams, key cases, and sample question/answers. I particularly like the key debates section which is excellent and unique. - Renu Barton-Hanson, Principal Lecturer in Law, Middlesex University, London
