The English Legal System
In memoriam Gary Slapper 1958-2016
Slapper and Kellyâ€™s The English Legal System explains and critically assesses how our law is made and applied. Trusted by generations of academics and students, this authoritative textbook clearly describes the legal rules of England and Wales and their collective influence as a sociocultural institution. This latest edition has been extensively restructured and updated, providing up-to-date and reliable analysis of recent developmentsthat have an impact on the legal system in England and Wales. Key learning features include: useful chapter summaries which act as a good check point for students; â€˜food for thoughtâ€™ questions at the end of each chapter to prompt critical thinking and reflection; sources for further reading and suggested websites at the end of each chapter to point students towards further learning pathways; and an online skills network including how tos, practical examples, tips, advice and interactive examples of English law in action. Relied upon by generations of students, this book is a permanent fixture in this ever-evolving subject.
