Abstract

Legal Systems & Skills provides essential knowledge and skills for underpinning legal studies, providing a foundation for graduate employability both within and outside the legal service profession. It develops students’ understanding in three core areas: legal systems, legal skills, and professional development and commercial awareness. The first part of the book looks at legal systems, sources of law, legislation, case law, and legal services. The next part considers how to read and understand law, legal research, problem solving, communication, and writing and drafting. The final part examines employability skills, business, economics and finance, law firms, and clients.
