Designed for students who may not have ready access to a law library, and for students on part-time and distance learning courses, the Sourcebook series offers a collection of material from a diversity of sources. The sources are annotated to set the materials in context and to explain their relevance and importance. This volume contains a representative selection of cases and statutes which cover such topics as the nature of law, sources of law, and the structure and jurisdiction of the civil and criminal courts. The legal profession and the interpretation of statutes are also discussed.
