Description - Law: The Basics by Gary Slapper
Law: The Basics is an engaging introduction to one of the most complex areas of modern life. The book introduces both the main components of the legal system -- including judges, juries and law-makers - and key areas of law -- contract, civil negligence, and criminal law -- to provide the uninitiated with an ideal introduction to law. Key questions to be considered include: How are laws made? How do judges decide cases? What is the exact role of the EU in the legal system? What are your rights and duties under contract law? What is a crime and what are criminal defences? Throughout the book, a wide range of contemporary cases are examined to relate key legal concepts to familiar examples and real world situations.
