Catherine Elliott and Frances Quinn

English Legal System

 

 

Now in its fifth edition, Elliott and Quinn's English Legal System is an established and popular textbook with students and lecturers alike.  It provides a lively, clear and comprehensive explanation of the legal system of England and Wales, with a topical emphasis on how the law is made and applied in practice.

 

The book has been brought up to date with changes in case law, legislation and the constitution that have affected the English legal system in the previous two years.  The authors provide critical analysis and discussion as well as clear description, so the readers will be able to develop their own views and contribute effectively to topics of current debate.

 

Each chapter is structured to present the material in the best order for learning and revision, with clear headings to navigate the reader through the text, and guidelines on answering examination questions at the end.  The book concludes with a chapter of general advice on examination technique and a glossary.  A companion website (www.booksites.net/elliottquinn) provides regular updates on changes in the law that affect the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A definitive must have book 28 Oct 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Whilst studying for my A levels, this book proved invaluable in my revision and definatley helped me get an A grade in my A level Law exam. The reason why the book is so good is that Elliot & Quinn have broken down the English legal System in an easy to understand method which explains key essentials in a basic format initially .then progressing to an easy to understand but more detailed version of the basics which have been grasped in the initial chapters. Constant examples and references to cases prove invaluable in understanding legal theory and application of facts. The best part however is the way Elliot & Quinn have mentioned how elements of the English Legal System can be reformed. This book is not just a book you read during your A levels and put aside afterwards, it is one you will be constantly using as a reference source. I have just started a degree in Law and I am still using this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Accessible, Interesting and Well Written 30 Oct 2005
By Jane
Format:Paperback
I studied A level Law about 5 years ago, using this as my only text book. It is very well written, clear and concise (and most importantly, interesting!) and it is updated regularly to include nearly everything you may be examined upon for your A level Law. My class was proof that it works- of the 15 of us
who were studying, 10 of us obtained an A grade, 3 a B grade and 2 a C. Obviously we all worked hard and revised, but it was this book that made revision so much easier. I just wish that Elliot and Quinn wrote all Law books!

By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This has got to be the best book for studying Law. I am currently studying AS Level and it is a very valuable source that it provides clear and consise information which is up to date, which is so hard to find in any book. It also attracts the readers attention and has case studies which are of use and appropriate to the reader espically a student.
