    schema:reviewBody ""Exploring the Law is a textbook primarily for first year undergraduate Introduction to Law and Legal method courses but also very useful as an aid to the study of substantive law courses. It emphasises the importance of the core elements of precedent and statutory interpretation and portrays such elements as integral and vibrant parts of the law rather than as abstract concepts." "Case studies drawn from areas of law commonly encountered by undergraduates are used to link the mechanics of precedent and statutory interpretation with substantive law. Two types of case studies are used: one focuses on individual cases illustrative of certain aspects of precedent and statutory interpretation, whilst the other shows how legal rules develop through judicial decisions and/or legislation. Each case study, whilst self-contained, is closely linked to the section on general principles through extensive cross-references." "This edition contains a new section on the Human Rights Act 1998; an additional case study on false imprisonment, 'detention' and the Mental Health Act 1983; a completely revised case study on the right to sue in private nuisance; and a substantially enlarged study on nervous shock or psychiatric injury. Existing case studies have been brought up-to-date with developments in the law, and the text has been fully updated throughout."--BOOK JACKET." ;
