CLICK HERE TO BUY THE POCKETBOOK OF IRISH LAW

The Pocket-sized Book of Irish Law – A guide to the Irish Legal System with a user friendly index. The compact format of this pocket-sized booklet makes it ideal for the reader to access information which they can carry around in their purse or coat which makes it convenient and suitable for daily life.

Law and the legal system are at the heart of all aspects of life in Ireland, from buying a cup of coffee on the way to work to investing in your first (or any home), getting a job to opening a new business, law surrounds our every move, yet most people living in Ireland are unaware of its impact on their daily lives.

The first time most people encounter the law is either, in a small civil matter, like contract issues, or minor road traffic offences, such as parking illegally or speeding etc.This basic introductory PocketBook is just that, a layman’s guide, it is not meant to be an academic text book, it is merely a guide, however, saying that, many first year law students on the CPA, ATI and ACCA courses as well as year one legal proactive and LLB students find it invaluable as it introduces all the rules and principles in plain English and they can then get on with the important task of learning the terminology once they come to grasps with the principles.

There is a self-test MCQ at the end of the book AND answers.

**Warning; another disclaimer ** This booklet has at its core, terminology which is aimed at a novice, it has some terminology explained in plain English in brackets (like this) and explanations of core rules and principles (at the end of paragraphs), it has icons and also humorous pictures (to remove the staunchness of legal reading), and at the end it has some court humour excerpts and the lighter side of law, a look at some old, strange and by modern standards, weird laws, if you don’t want to see these when you are reading your legal book, probably best for you “mosey on by” & not buy/read this one.
