English Private Law

Oxford Principles of English Law, edited by Professor Andrew Burrows is the essential first point of reference on English law for lawyers in the UK and throughout the world. This pack makes the third edition of English Private Law edited by Professor Andrew Burrows QC FBA, and the second edition of English Public Law edited by Professor David Feldman QC FBA, available together as a single pack. Now in its third edition, English Private Law has established itself as a key point of reference on English private law for lawyers in the UK and throughout the world. The book acts as an accessible first point of reference for practitioners approaching a private law issue for the first time, whilst simultaneously providing a lucid, concise and authoritative overview of all the key areas of private law. This includes contract, tort, unjust enrichment, land law, trusts, intellectual property, succession, family, companies, insolvency, private international law and civil procedure. Each section is written by an acknowledged expert, using their experience and understanding to provide a clear distillation and analysis of the subject. This new edition includes all the recent developments since the publication of the second edition, covering some areas that were previously not addressed including arbitration in civil procedure, the Human Rights Act 1998 in tort law, and regulatory reform in the light of the global financial crisis. No other single text provides such comprehensive and lucid coverage of the whole of English private law as this one - the book's depth of analysis, combined with its ease of reference, make it a favourite among academics and students worldwide. The second edition of English Public Law acts as an accessible first point of reference for practitioners approaching a public law issue for the first time, whilst simultaneously providing a lucid, concise and authoritative overview of all the key areas of public law (constitutional, administrative, human rights, and criminal law) within one single portable volume. The second edition has been fully revised and updated to take into account all key legislative and procedural changes since 2004, including; - the gradual bringing into force of both the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 and the Criminal Justice Act 2003 - the Civil Partnerships Act 2004 - the Constitutional Reform Act 2005 (including the anticipated introduction of the Supreme Court in October 2009) - recent higher courts decisions concerning public law and human rights; - the Criminal Procedure Rules 2005; - the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005; - the Armed Forces Act 2006; - the Equality Act 2006; - the Consolidated Criminal Practice Direction; - the Criminal Justice and Immigration Act 2008; - changes introduced by the Tribunals Service throughout 2007 and 2008 Both books are an ideal quick reference for practitioners to fall back on when a client raises a point outside their normal area of expertise as well as for academics, overseas libraries, and practitioners overseas who want a one-stop resource on English private and public law.

Foreign lawyers now have a readily accessible account of English law. Students wishing to obtain an overview of a topic either before or after studying it are well served. Practising lawyers may also want an introduction to an unfamiliar topic or an account of a particular area to get their bearings. The difficult question will not be why this book was written but how we coped without it. * Robert Stevens, Professor of Commercial Law, UCL * It is a very important book that offers an impressive overview of the laws of England. * Marion Simmons QC 3-4 South Square, London * The book is an essential part of any Euopean law library of repute...It is immensely useful to scholars and lawyers working in other jurisdictions seeking a clear account of English law and scholarly analysis of difficult subject areas. * Professor Dr Reinhard Zimmermann Max Planck Institute, Hamburg * I find it to be a unique achievement among scholarly law books, and am continually surprised at the depth of analysis offered by a book that appears to offer a bird's eye view of English Private Law....It is written by undoubted is lucid, succinct, and yet it is immensely broad in its scope... * Professor Sir John H Baker University of Cambridge * Review from previous edition There must be very few of us who would not benefit from, and be much better informed as a result of having a copy of English Private Law on our shelves. * Stephen Watterson, LQR, 124 *
