9780199254798: First Steps in the Law

First Steps in the Law is an accessible introduction to law. This second edition has been completely revised and updated to take into account recent developments. It provides a wealth of fascinating details about the legal system and the many people who participate in it, from judges to MPs and police. The book vividly describes how laws are made, and how cases are tried. It includes chapters on the principles involved in the administration of justice, the development of common law, the constitution, legal professions, and courts. Interesting historical and contemporary cases bring the book to life, as it covers issues such as discrimination, human rights, and drugs, and explains how the law affects young people today.

Review:

`Review from previous edition "skillfully combines a "starter" history of our legal system with a thumbnail sketch of the laws that affect us and the people who implement them"' The Times
