Among the many new skills law students have to acquire, using legal materials and solving legal problems are possibly the most important. It was with this in mind that the authors wrote this book which could be used to support a course of study in legal method, or be used as a self-teaching guide to the subject. It takes a step-by-step approach to the mechanics of reasoning, precedent and interpretation, with the support of practical exercises which are designed to enable the student to gain experience in, as well as knowledge of, the area. The authors explain how to uncover and exploit the mysteries of legal materials, using this to draw the student into the techniques of legal analysis and argument and the operation of precedent and statutory interpretation. Each chapter includes practical self-testing exercises designed to support the text. Throughout the book they also examine the permeating influence of EEC Law and the legal method employed by Continental legal systems.
