Product description

Review

Reviews of the First Edition 'What About Law?' succeeds where so many legal guidebooks fail. The authors give a measured, succinct tour around key legal issues that is both illuminating for the non-lawyer and refreshingly thought-provoking for those whose undergraduate days are long behind them...By anchoring the book in contemporary cases replete with human interest and a tangible effect on our lives, 'What About Law?' skilfully demystifies the law and ably proves its argument. The law is, indeed, all around us - and this book will whet your appetite to find out how and why. --Alex Wade The Times 22nd January 2008

The enthusiasm of the authors for the academic study of their subject is infectious, and this energetic little book should give those musing about a law degree a better insight into whether to study law at university than any amount of work experience in a lawyer's office, which after all, is not the inevitable outcome of a law degree, any more than it necessitates one. --Cherry James Web Journal of Current Legal Issues

As a 17 year old student who wishes to study Law at University, I have found it particularly difficult to get a clear idea as to what studying Law entails having never studied it previously. However, your recently published book 'What about Law?' stands out as a superb read for any prospective Law student. The writing style is very accessible and areas of which I previously had little or no knowledge such as EU Law, have been brought to life through the excellent writing technique...After reading 'What about Law?', I feel far more aware of what the Law is and what a university Law course is likely to consist of...I am sure that anyone who has the good fortune to pick up and read this book will answer the title question with a resounding 'Yes! --Matthew Cowen, Student at Haberdashers' Aske's Boys' School, Elstree July 2008
