It gives lots of straightforward examples as to how the law works in practice and aims to equip students with the ability to appraise the effectiveness of the law in a particular circumstance rather than simply providing a list of rules for the student to regurgitate at exam time.

The new edition has been updated to take account of all recent developments, both in relation to statute and to case law.

New chapters on Agency and Negligence have been added. brThis new edition should be suitable for most courses which have a law element.
