Packed within its 1,800 pages, users will find a lucid, concise yet immensely authoritative account of all of the key areas ofprivate law. Edited by the Regius Professor of Civil Law at Oxford University, Peter Birks, each section is written by an acknowledged expert, bringing to bear their experience and understanding to provide a clear distillation and analysis of the relevant subject.The work is uniquely ambitious in its coverage, with chapters grouped into five main parts: sources of law; law of persons; law of property; law of obligations; and litigation. In each case, leading experts expound the law in their own specialist area, for instance: Dr Stephen Cretney - Family Law;Prof. W.R. Cornish - Intellectual Property; Prof. Sir Guenter Treitel - Contract; Prof. Mark Freedland - Employment; Prof. Norman Palmer - Bailment; Prof. Francis Reynolds - Agency, and Carriage of Goods; Prof. Peter Birks - Unjust Enrichment.English Private Law will become a cornerstone of all legal reference libraries, both practitioner and academic, in the UK and around the world. Practitioners will come to rely upon it as an authoritative yet accessible first source of reference on substantive English law. Academics will turn to itas a distillation of the learning of many of the leading English law scholars. Overseas lawyers will find it a convenient 'one-stop' solution to their need for a holding on English law.The two handsomely-bound volumes are presented in a slip case that will also accommodate the cumulative paperback supplements that will be published to keep English Private Law up to date between editions.
