'This book is nothing short of excellent. The layout is superb, the language is clear and precise and it contains everything required for an LLB/GDL student. I found this much more helpful than the majority of notes from lectures and as a bonus it contains helpful diagrams, charts and explanatory summaries that condensed 7 months into a few readings. I bought this book thinking it would be suitable back-up for my core texts, and instead it became the key text for the course. Also, it's significantly cheaper than other revision guides and textbooks.'
