PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Understanding Law presents a contextual overview of the English legal system. Now in its fourth edition, the work:

  • Sets a distinctive manifesto for legal education that is in line with the ACLEC emphasis on “understanding” (rather than passive role learning) as the key to the initial stage of legal education
