Abstract / Description

This manual is designed to familiarise you with some basic ideas about the system of law in England and Wales. It is largely English law that you will be learning and applying in this course. The law of any country is much more than a "set of rules". The rules are what we perceive on the surface, but creating and underpinning them is a "legal culture" or way of thinking. The way the rules work can only be understood by considering the context in which they are generated and applied.

If you have not studied or worked with English Law before, you will find it invaluable to gain a basic knowledge of legal structure, legal language, legal research and legal analysis, before looking at the substantive law which forms the main body of this course.

Throughout this text you will find formative exercises, many of which you will attempt in the tutorials and as homework.
