James' introduction to English law
This edition is now under the authorship of Peter Shears and Graham Stephenson, who have added a contemporary outlook to its traditional virtues. It includes the latest legislation such as the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 and its effect on civil liberties, the Sale and Supply of Goods Act 1994 and the Trade Union Reform and Employment Rights Act 1993. There is also an expanded treatment of the Law Commission, updated details concerning the court system, significant changes to the material on the legal profession and a reflection of the increasing importance of European Law; as well as further statute and much new case law.
