Product Description

Review

"How the Law Works is a gem of a book, for law students and for everyone else. It is a must read for anyone interested in how society is shaped and controlled via law." Steven Vaughan, solicitor, Lecturer in Law, University of Bristol

"How the Law Works is a very useful companion to anyone embarking on the study of law." Andrew Baker, Liverpool John Moores University

"How the Law Works is a comprehensive, witty and easy-to-read guide to the law. I thoroughly recommend it to non-lawyers who want to improve their knowledge of the legal system and to potential students as an introduction to the law of England and Wales." HH Judge Lynn Tayton QC

Reviews of the first edition:

"An easy-to-read, fascinating book ... brimful with curios, anecdote and explanation." The Times

"A friendly, readable and surprisingly entertaining overview of what can be a daunting and arcane subject to the outsider." The Law Teacher

Great for someone starting out in law who has never done it before or for the layman who just wants to know how things work. Easy to read and great for the price. Definitely would recommend!
