About the Author:


Geoffrey Rivlin, Former Senior Resident Judge, Southwark Crown Court

His Honour Geoffrey Rivlin QC was a Senior Circuit Judge and the Honorary Recorder of Westminster. Before he became a Judge he was a barrister and Queen's Counsel.

Review:

Review from previous edition: "Many other text books are boring; their writing is heavy-going and immediately puts students off. This book is a joy to read; it makes the topics interesting by picking out stories that relate and explain the subject matter." --Amanda Taylor, Lecturer, University of Westminster

"This book is a great introduction to law for our students; the content is always contemporary and detailed and it is written in an extremely engaging, stimulating and lively way. We find that students particularly like the interesting cases chapter." --Joanne Sellick, Associate Dean for Teaching and Learning, University of Plymouth
