Book Description

1 Aug 2006
This work: presents a contextual overview of the English legal system; provides the groundwork for a critical understanding of legal institutions, processes and materials; places the study of law within a broader framework of inquiry focusing on the evaluation and explanation of legal decision making at all levels; examines the civil justice system after Woolf; looks at the impact of the Human Rights Act; analyses the globalisation of law; sets a distinctive manifesto for legal education that is in line with the ACLEC emphasis on "understanding" (rather than passive role learning) as the key to the initial stage of legal education.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best for non specialists 15 Jan 2011
By K. Rose
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Colleagues in law believe this to be a great summary and aid to understanding many areas of law, and on explanation it definately does seem to be.

However, for non-specialists looking to broaden the knowledge of their own specialist area by being aware of some of the workings or the law, it does seem rather weak, assuming a fair amount of knowledge, not least many technical terms.

For those in law, it is ideal, otherwise this probably isn't for you without some previous background experience.
