Description

New Zealand’s two leading legal method books are available at a special price as a bundle: New Zealand Law: Foundations and Method (2nd edition) by Stephen Penk and Mary-Rose Russell and Principles of Legal Method (3rd edition) by Richard Scragg.

The texts complement each other and work together to provide students with the broad skills needed to understand and apply

Principles of Legal Method (3rd edition) introduces students to the fundamental concepts of legal method, and then, step by step, teaches them to work with these concepts in a practical way. It starts out with an account of the general principles of the common law system and then provides a chapter by chapter account of: (i) how to understand and interpret substantive law (ie, case law and statute law), (ii) the way in which case law is built into a body of law, and (iii) how to acquire and apply the skills of case analysis, statutory interpretation, and reasoning by analogy.

New Zealand Law: Foundations and Method (2nd edition) is a complete, easy-to-read introduction written with a focus on student learning. It brings the theory to life with plenty of worked examples, questions and answers, and practice exercises throughout the text, working its way through the content of the full year course in detail. This text was previously published as the New Zealand Legal Method Handbook, and has been renamed to reflect the introduction of content on legal foundations as well as thoroughly revised discussion of the principles of legal method.
