Review from previous edition: "Martin Partington has succeeded admirably in providing a text which both explains things clearly, and encourages the reader to think about the enormous changes currently affecting the legal system. He has been able to draw on his experience not only as a teacher
of law, but also as a law reformer and contributor to the work of many important committees."
