An Introduction to Law
An Introduction to Law has become established as one of the leading student introductions to the subject. In addition to providing a clear account of basic legal concepts, the underlying theme of this fifth edition continues to be the importance of regarding law and the legal system as living institutions within society, and of appreciating how rules and legal structures both reflect and influence changes in social, economic and political life. With its thorough, readable treatment of practical issues in law within a relevant social context, An Introduction to Law is aimed at all new students of law, including A level students, those on HND/C Business Studies or foundation social science courses, undergraduate law students and those studying law as part of a mixed degree.
