About this book
A jargon-free overview of law, this introduces the essentials of legal systems in a lively, accessible and stimulating manner, and includes simple explanations of terms, concepts, procedures and judgements.
Law touches every aspect of our daily lives, and yet the main concepts, terms, and processes of the legal system remain obscure to many. This Very Short Introduction provides a clear, jargon-free account of modern legal systems, explaining how the law works both in the Western tradition and around the world.
