English Legal System

Did you know that the two new textbooks published in our range of legal research skills and systems books have a range of online resources that benefit tutor and student? The third edition of Legal English by Rupert Haigh combines and integrates print and online elements. You can see what is available on the companion website here.

The 13th edition of The English Legal System by Gary Slapper and David Kelly published in March. This authoritative and respected textbook benefits from a companion website that has been described by Richard Lee, Senior Lecturer in Law at Manchester Metropolitan University, UK as 'one of the best sets of online resources I have ever seen'. You can find more information about this comprehensive resource today.

The companion website of Rupert Haigh's third edition of Legal English has a number of features that will benefit students and lecturers.

If you are a student you will find a bank of activities and exercises corresponding to the chapters in the book designed to give you additional practice opportunities in using Legal English in a range of scenarios. These will range from simple gap-fill exercises, to multiple choice questions, to written activities, to comprehension exercises based on video simulations of real-life legal situations. An automatic grading facility will help you assess your own progress and identify areas for improvement. You can also email your results to your class tutor if required.

If you are a lecturer you will find a bank of customizable activities which can be used with small groups in seminars or tutorials to help practice their use of oral Legal English. You can also receive notification of your students’ results in the activities and quizzes from the student section of the site.

Long established as having a host of valuable online resources, this new edition of the companion website for Gary Slapper and David Kelly's The English Legal System has a testbank of questions available to instructors which can be fully implemented into your learning management system.
