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 second editions of both English Private Law edited by Professor Andrew Burrows QC FBA, and EnglishPublic Law edited by Professor David Feldman QC FBA, available together as a single pack.Now in a single portable volume, the second edition of English Private Law includes all the recent developments since the publication of the first edition and the two supplements, the last of which published in 2003. It has been expanded to include coverage of a number of key areas that werepreviously not addressed, including; insurance, banking and carriage of goods by land and air. In addition, the chapters on land and companies have undergone extensive revision and the section on civil procedure has been fully revised to reflect current law and practice. No other single textprovides such comprehensive and lucid coverage of the whole of English private law - the book's depth of analysis, combined with its ease of reference, make it a favourite among acadmics 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 completely updated to take account of all key legislative and procedural changes since the first edition published in 2004, including: the Constitutional Reform Act 2005; the recent highercourts decisions concerning public law and human rights; the Criminal Procedure Rules 2005; and other key changes over the past five years.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.
Andrew Burrows, QC, is Norton Rose Professor of Commercial Law, University of Oxford.
