Title: What about Law?

Most young people considering a legal career have very little idea of what is involved or how universities teach law to their students. The new edition of this book, which proved very popular when first published in 2007, provides a 'taster' for the study of law. It is a short, accessible presentation of law as an academic subject, designed to help 17- and 18-year old students and others decide whether law is the right choice for them as a university subject. If they have already made the choice, the book reveals what to expect when they start their law degree. It helps answer the question 'what should I study at university?' and counters the perception that law is a dry, dull subject. What About Law? is an accessible and easy-to-read guide, showing how the study of law can be fun, intellectually stimulating, challenging, and of direct relevance to students. Using a case study approach, the book introduces prospective law students to the legal system, as well as to legal reasoning, critical thinking, and argument. What About Law? answers vital questions about why, when, and how to study law, and it should be in the library of every college and university. It is the one book that any student about to embark on the study of law should read before they commence their legal studies. The contributors all have lengthy experience in teaching law and all have also been involved, at various times, in advising prospective law students.
