Book Description

The Unlocking the Law series is designed specifically to make the law accessible. Each chapter opens with a list of aims and objectives, contains activities such as quick quizzes and self-test questions, key facts charts to consolidate your knowledge, diagrams to aid learning and numerous headings and sub-headings to make the subject manageable. Cases and judgments are prominently displayed, as are primary source quotations. Features include: summaries to check your understanding of each chapter, a glossary of legal terminology and essay questions with answer plans. All titles in the series follow the same formula and include the same features so students can move easily from one subject to another. The series covers all the core subjects required by the Bar Council and the Law Society for entry onto professional qualifications as well as popular option units.

The website provides free resources such as multiple choice questions and updates in law.

Product Description


"The coverage of this textbook is relevant and thorough and the topics are presented in a reader-friendly way (the use of diagrams and graphics is a strength in this respect), suitable for undergraduate students approaching the subject for the first time."

Dr Phil Bielby, Law School, The University of Hull

I teach law at undergraduate level and am impressed with this book. It is clear, well laid out and up to date. I recommended it to my level 6 students who are writing coursework on assited suicide and euthanasia, and the response from them has been very positive. They find it easy to understand and accessible. As an introduction to medical law and ethics it's very good indeed.
