SECOND YEAR UNDERGRADUATE
"This is an excellent series, which hits the target at a remarkable number of levels. The clarity of its reference points makes it ideal for students new to undergraduate study, while at the same time being the perfect ‘refresher’ book for students about to start on professional courses. More than that, the series is great as a ‘starter pack’ for non-specialist students covering elements of law as part of their wider studies, and invaluable for teaching international students studying the English common law from abroad."

LAW LECTURER (for almost 30 years in Universities & Business Schools in the UK and Europe)
" received an inspection copy of your Q&A book for intellectual property law students (and staff). I just wanted to say that I find it very helpful to add some focus to particular topics as part of the subject delivery. I particularly like some of the discussion topics on the ‘hot potatoes’ of IP (like non-conventional trademarks). So – thank you very much for providing such an inspiring book, especially from a learning & teaching viewpoint!"
Thorsten Lauterbach, Lecturer in Law, University of Aberdeen.
