'Excellent diversity of materials with a comfortable balance between government material and academic material.'   Rosemary Higgott, University of Wolverhampton

English Legal System, Essential Cases and Materials contains handpicked cases, statutes and other sources for law students. It saves time by bringing together a wide range of topical and relevant material. It is designed to be more concise and user-friendly than other cases and materials books, with the same clear style and layout that has made the Elliott & Quinn textbooks so popular. 

  • Materials are organised by topics covered in most undergraduate course syllabi, making it easy to match materials to lectures and tutorials.
  • Topical and recent material and cases are included, alongside historically important decisions, to support comprehensive development of legal knowledge.  
  • Online support is provided through the companion website located at www.mylawchamber.co.uk/elliottquinnelscases and includes regular case and legislation updates, weblinks, and a glossary.
  • English Legal System, Essential Cases and Materials is designed to be used as a resource in its own right or alongside Catherine Elliott and Frances Quinn's English Legal System textbook. 

Catherine Elliott is a qualified Barrister and Lecturer in Law at City University, London. She has extensive experience of teaching law.
