English legal system in context
Following the same structure and philosophy as the two previous editions which have made this work so well respected, the new, third edition of English Legal System in Context offers a fresh approach to this core subject by considering a wider range of issue than can be found in other texts on this field. One example of this expanded approach can be seen in its coverage of the legal justice system. Here the authors consider the police, their powers and the rights of suspects detained at the police station. However, they also examine the world of private policing, the work of environmental health officers and other non-police prosecutors, as well as the role of the public in uncovering crime.
