Connecting with Law 2nd edition covers the foundations of law in an interesting and thought provoking way, challenging students to think critically, question ideas, and connect with law. It provides students with a broader context which allows them to start thinking about the values law embodies and their relationship to society. This fresh approach to introductory law is designed to engage students with contemporary examples and case studies they can relate to, and which help them understand the law. The opening chapter provides a quick summary of everything in the book; this serves as pre-reading for students, who are likely to be studying Torts, Contract Law or other law subjects at the same time, and need a quick foundation. Teaches students skills for case analysis and interpreting legislation through practice exercises and discussion questions in each chapter, which build in intensity as these skills develop. New to this edition: New 'In depth' boxes, some including questions and examples, allow students to delve deeper into topics. More on jurisprudence statutory interpretation with more practical exercises to help students. More on student assessment - essays, case notes, letters on advice. More activities and exercises throughout. This title is also available as an e-book.
