    Unlocking Criminal Law Reviews

    The writing style is clear and precise. It has 'user-friendly' language which avoids being over-simplistic whilst still managing to accurately explain legal meanings.
    - David W Selfe, Director, School of Law, Liverpool John Moores University

    The book is very well written and an excellent overall text for the first year student or even advanced A-Level student. The book has many useful qualities such as the case examples and judgment quotes from the leading cases. I would recommend this text to a first year LL.B student without any hesitation. Overall I would rate this book 8 and a half out of 10
    - Steven Rogers, LLB Student at The University of South Wales
