About the Authors
  • As a critical analysis of the law-making process, this book has no equal. For more than two decades it has filled a gap in the requirements of law students and others taking introductory courses on the legal system. It deals with every aspect of the law-making process: the preparation of legislation; its passage through Parliament; statutory interpretation; binding precedent; how precedent works; law reporting; the nature of the judicial role; European Union law; and the process of law reform. It presents a large number of original texts from a variety of sources--cases, official reports, articles, books, speeches and empirical research studies--laced with the author's informed commentary and reflections on the subject. This book is a mine of information dealing with both the broad sweep of the subject and with all its detailed ramifications.

    • Provides a critical, well-informed analysis of every aspect of the law-making process, focusing on how the system actually works
    • For almost a quarter of a century the book has been widely regarded as the leading work in its field, used by law students in England and throughout the common law world
    • Presents a wide range of original texts - cases, official reports, articles, books, speeches and empirical research studies - laced with the author's informed commentary and reflections on the subject
