Blackstone Press, Feb 27, 1991 - Law - 247 pages
"Learning Legal Rules brings together the theory, structure, and practice of legal reasoning in a readily accessible style. The book explains how to find and make use of legal materials, and offers an overview of the techniques of legal analysis and argument, and the operation of precedent and statutory interpretation. The authors also examine the permeating influence of EC Law and the legal method employed by Continental legal systems." "This fifth edition has been extensively rewritten and reorganized, with a new, clearer layout, to ensure that it continues to fit the needs of law students. It contains more guidance on interpreting statutes, an extended introductory chapter entitled 'What is Law?', and new material on the Human Rights Act."--BOOK JACKET.
