Summary
  • "New to English law? Need to know how rules are made, interpreted and applied? This popular and well-established textbook will show you how. It simplifies legal method by combining examples with an account of rules in general: the who, what, why and how of interpretation. Starting with standpoint and context, it identifies factors that give rise to doubts about the interpretation of a rule and recommends a systematic approach to analysing those factors. Questions and exercises integrated in the text and on the accompanying website will help you to develop skills in reading, interpreting and arguing about legal and other rules. The text is fully updated on developments in the legislative process and the judicial interpretation of statutes and precedent. It includes a new chapter on 'The European Dimension' reflecting the changes brought about by the Human Rights Act 18"--Provided by publisher
  • "introductions to these important aspects of the modern law of the United Kingdom. The implementation of the Human Rights Act 18 (which had been enacted but was not fully in force when the fourth edition was published) has transformed the legislative, judicial and political landscape of the United Kingdom"--Provided by publisher
