Product description

From the Back Cover


“The latest edition of Smith and Keenan’s English Law cannot fail to impress once again. This comprehensive introductory law text is a dependable companion for every non-law student and layman alike. The new authors are to be commended for successfully carrying on the tradition upon which the book's excellent reputation was built.” Andrea Cerevkova, Senior Lecturer in Law, Learning and Teaching Fellow, Edge Hill University

Smith and Keenan's English Law is the most comprehensive text on English law available on the market. Suitable for students at all levels. ”   Lachmi Singh, Senior Lecturer in Law, University of West of England


Ever wanted to know exactly how laws are made and enforced? Or what the legal responsibilities of your employer towards you are? Or what makes a contract term fair and legal?

Well-known for its uniquely comprehensive coverage of the legal system and the main, substantive, areas of English law, Smith and Keenan’s English Law is the all- purpose reference guide and introduction to the law. It’s ideal for students and professionals alike, and for anyone who needs to understand how the law relates to them and their work.

The new authors continue in the style of previous editions and explain the law in a clear, jargon-free style which is immediately accessible to students and non-specialists alike.

Several important changes have been made to the new edition in addition to bringing it up to date with recent case and statute law:

·        A new section covering European Union Law is included to highlight the ever increasing role European Law plays in English Law.

·        The chapters on the Law of Torts and Employment Law have been expanded in order to provide a more complete picture of these two important areas.

·        The section dealing with Contract Law has been updated to include greater consideration of e-commerce as well as issues of jurisdiction.
