This fourth edition of the leading A Level Law text has been written to meet the needs of the Curriculum 2000 AQA and OCR syllabi. It provides a student-friendly presentation of the text with paragraph numbering, highlighted case summaries and check list questions. But above all the text is clearly written by academics who are not only leading experts in their fields but also very experienced teachers.
The writers' aim is to make A Level study of Law an enjoyable and stimulating experience. So the book does not just describe the law, it discusses its practical workings, the theories on which it is based and the problems to which it gives rise. The study of law should also be exciting. Law is not just about rules; it is about argument, and throughout the text students are encouraged to consider the arguments that surround the controversial issues in the law.
A lot has changed since the last edition in 1996. The Human Rights Act 1998 has been passed; litigation has been brought into the 21st century by the Woolf reforms; the courts have continued to reshape the law to match changing values; and Parliament continues to pass reforming statutes.;All this is reflected in the new edition. Changes in the syllabi are also reflected with some sections being reduced in scope and new sections being added along with a new chapter on Theft.
The book remains the most comprehensive A Level text covering Legal System, Crime, Tort and Contract, and it will continue to be the leading text.
