Beginner's Guide for Law Students by Klein, D et al
Publisher: Juta 2019
The fifth edition of Beginner’s Guide for Law Students is a foundational text which introduces first-year law students to:
• basic legal terminology and definitions;
• the South African legal system’s objectives, history and subdivisions; and
• legal research skills.
Students are introduced to the law as it stands, in accessible terms, with reference to the different sources of law and popular media, to demonstrate how the law affects the everyday lives of individuals and groups in South Africa. Without detracting from the book’s accessibility, students are made aware of the law’s complexity, contestability and uncertainties.
