In this lucid, stimulating and completely updated survey which presupposes no specialist knowledge of the subject, P. S. Atiyah introduces the reader to a number of fundamental issues about the law, the legal profession, and the adjudicative process. This new edition gives greater emphasis to the
effect of membership of the European Community on English law, and gives an expanded account of the European convention on Human Rights with its subsequent effects on English law. Atiyah also looks at the recent controversy over the independence of the judiciary, problems arising from the cost of
legal services and legal aid, and the many appalling miscarriages of justice which have disfigured the legal system in the past decade.
