This book is part of a series of 7 study manuals that have been specially designed to cover academic law for students converting to law. Published and updated regularly, these user-friendly study manuals are designed to help you successfully acquire knowledge and understanding of the foundational law of England & Wales.
They provide solid knowledge and understanding of fundamental legal principles and rules, while bringing the law and practice to life with example scenarios based on realistic client problems.
Each title is designed to operate as a study manual, rather than solely a textbook. This means that understanding of the academic law is developed using worked examples and activities, as well as more traditional explanation of legal principles.
For students at The University of Law, the study manuals are used alongside other learning resources to prepare students not only for achievement of an academic qualification, but also for a future life in professional legal practice.
The legal principles and rules contained within this study manual are stated as at 1 July 2021.
