This is an introductory book for those tackling legal subjects for the first time. The guide sets out to teach the reader to understand, assess and use legal source materials. It demonstrates how to find, read and analyze a variety of legal materials - cases, statutes, artivles, textbooks - and contains coverage of both specific legal techniques and of the more general study skills needed by any student. This edition has been updated to take into account developments in courses (for example the introduction of the Legal Practice Course). New cases are used in "work through" exercises, and there is greater emphasis on EC law and materials.
