    DescriptionFoundations for the LPC offers an excellent base for students who need to understand the key principles of the core and pervasive topics on the Legal Practice Course. As well as offering complete coverage of foundation topics, it illustrates the importance of the professional conduct that underlies work in legal practice by including extracts from the Law Society's new draft Code of Conduct. The text includes worked examples and scenarios throughout to illustrate key points and aid understanding, and checkpoints and summaries to test comprehension of the core material. This guide is essential reading for all students and a useful reference source for practitioners. Online Resource Centre A test bank of multiple choice questions closely tied to the material included in the book offers lecturers an excellent tool for testing their students' knowledge of the topics covered.
