Reviews

"These books are brilliant! The Q & As sound so similar to our real exam questions.. I would definitely recommend these to all students on the LLB and also for students refreshing their knowledge for the LPC"

NEW GRADUATE JUST ABOUT TO START LPC

"What a relief! A book I can understand quickly.. I’ll be using these this year"

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)
