'This textbook is well-written and introduces even difficult areas in a form that is accessible. I am particularly pleased that the text introduces a level of critical analysis to this area of the foundations of legal knowledge which many textbook writers approach from a black-letter point of view", Samuli Miettinen, Senior Lecturer in Law, Edge Hill University.

'Slapper and Kelly's textbook on the English Legal System is ideal for first year law students as it is comprehensive yet accessible in that it is easy to read and understand', Nicola Isaacs, Lecturer in Law, University of Plymouth.
