4.0 out of 5 stars Good Introductory guide, yet detailed and thorough., 21 Jun. 2011
Public Law can be a very challenging, and often dry subject. This book, however, made the study of the subject all the more interesting. It includes many extracts or academic articles and deliberation by judges in famous cases which proved invaluable in understanding why certain decisions were reached. It explores all the sources of UK Constitutional law in depth, including Prerogative Powers, Devolution, the nature of the UK constitution and the rule of law, the seperation of powers and how this was altered by Constitutional Reform Act 2005. The relevant case law goes right to the heart of major political topics such as terrorism and the fundamental rights of the monorities under the Human Rights Act 1998. All in all this is a very good book in aiding to understand a series of complex and often perplexing issues. This book helped me to achieve a 2:1 in my first year exams on the topic.


The Modern Law of Contract: Eighth Edition
The Modern Law of Contract: Eighth Edition
by Richard Stone
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Really Good Book For First Year Law Students, 20 May 2011
The use of diagrams and the clear, logical style of this book is a big plus. Includes a lot of the important case law on the subject as well as the author's own analysis. Would definitely recommend this to anyone taking a contract module on an LLB course.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a good book for anyone new to the subject..., 19 May 2011
I'm a first year LLB student and my university recommended two key texts for Tort Law, either this or Tort Law by Horsey and Rackley. I really regret choosing this one first, and I later found myself buying the other. This book lacked clarity and structure for me, and as a first year it was somewhat difficult to understand, written as though designed for someone who already had prior knowledge of the subject. For an accessible book on the subject I would really recommend Tort Law by Horsey and Rackley.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really Useful for First Year LLB, 18 May 2011
I used this book throughout my first year and found it extremely useful. EU is a very complex topic but this book breaks down the key concepts into bitesize chunks making it easily understandable from the beginning of your course as well as a useful guide to turn to for revision.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Book For Any First Year Law Student, 18 May 2011
This review is from: Tort Law (Paperback)
Unlike many books on the subject, this book is very accessible and easy to read for any first year Law student studying for the LLB. It provides clear concise explanations of the legal issues involved in all the fundamental aspects of Tort Law, including Negligence, Vicarious Liability, Trespass to the Person, Defamation and Nuisance as well as facts of all of the relevant case law on these topics. It makes for very easy reading and all chapters are clearly headed. It was very useful in terms of revision as in the back it includes a number of problem questions which you can test yourself on as preperation for exams. I would strongly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really useful for anyone new to law, 16 Jun. 2010
This review is from: Legal Skills (Paperback)
I'm due to start a law degree in September, reading this book has given me a really good idea of what to expect and will help anyone who might be new to the legal world and needs a place to start. Its really easy to understand and the diagrams are a big help. I'd strongly recommend it to anyone taking an LLB.
