Abstract

Foundations for the LPC covers the areas of the Legal Practice Course as set out in the LPC Outcomes: Professional Conduct and Regulation, wills and administration of estates, and taxation. The volume also features content on human rights law. The volume uses worked examples and scenarios throughout to illustrate key points. To aid understanding and test comprehension of the core material, checkpoints and summaries feature in every chapter. The book covers topics such as professional conduct (including financial services and money laundering), revenue law (including income tax, capital gains tax, VAT, corporation tax, and inheritance tax), wills and administration of estates, and issues related to human rights.
