Beginning the Law

The new Beginning the Law series from Routledge is a collection of pure introductions which help students come to terms with the basic structure, themes and issues of each discipline before they advance with confidence to their core textbook.

Adopting a clear and simple approach with legal vocabulary explained in a detailed glossary, each subject is broken down using practical everyday examples to make it understandable for anyone, whatever their background. Diagrams and flowcharts simplify complex issues, important cases are identified and explained and on-the- spot questions help you recognise potential issues or debates within the law so that you can contribute in classes with confidence.

Beginning the Law will help students to:

  • come to terms with a new (legal) language;
  • get used to independent learning;
  • acclimatise to the higher pace of higher education;
  • apply the ‘big picture’ to narrow areas of the law.
