Oxford Principles of English Law, edited by Professor Andrew Burrows is the essential first point of reference on English law for lawyers in the UK and throughout the world. This pack makes the second editions of both English Private Law edited by Professor Andrew Burrows QC FBA, and English Public Law edited by Professor David Feldman QC FBA, available together as a single pack.

Now in a single portable volume, the second edition of English Private Law includes all the recent developments since the publication of the first edition and the two supplements, the last of which published in 2003. It has been expanded to include coverage of a number of key areas that were previously not addressed, including; insurance, banking andcarriage of goods by land and air. In addition, the chapters on land and companies have undergone extensive revision and the section on civil procedure has been fully revised to reflect current law and practice. No other single text provides such comprehensive and lucid coverage of the whole of English private law - the book's depth of analysis, combined with its ease of reference, make it a favourite among acadmics and students worldwide.

The second edition of English Public Law acts as an accessible first point of reference for practitioners approaching a public law issue for the first time, whilst simultaneously providing a lucid, concise and authoritative overview of all the key areas of public law (constitutional, administrative, human rights, and criminallaw) within one single portable volume. The second edition has been fully revised and updated to take into account all key legislative and procedural changes since 2004, including;

- the gradual bringing into force of both the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 and the Criminal Justice Act 2003
- the Civil Partnerships Act 2004
- the Constitutional Reform Act 2005 (including the anticipated introduction of the Supreme Court in October 2009)
- recent higher courts decisions concerning public law and human rights;
- the Criminal Procedure Rules 2005;
- the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005;
- the Armed Forces Act 2006;
- the Equality Act 2006;
- the Consolidated CriminalPractice Direction;
- the Criminal Justice and Immigration Act 2008;
- changes introduced by the Tribunals Service throughout 2007 and 2008

Both books are an ideal quick reference for practitioners to fall back on when a client raises a point outside their normal area of expertise as well as for academics, overseas libraries, and practitioners overseas who want a one-stop resource on English private and public law.
Readership: English legal practitioners (particularly those starting out or straying from their own area of expertise), practitioners outside the UK, academics, academic libraries, and students.
