Law books to readWatch
More law resources on TSR
-Sarah Langford's "In Your Defence"
-Secret Barrister's "Stories of the Law and How It's Broken"
I have got "the Rule of law" as well which is suggested for first years to read.
I also listen to the BBC podcast - law in Action (and marcus cleaver does one podcast a week on current supreme court decisions)
But the practitioner texts are almost written as a primary source of law -- often authored by judges, so makes sense -- so there is huge deference to the cases and you sometimes find speculation/originality lacking. Plus the authors are established and less iconoclastic than we might like.
I'm currently considering criminal law so both of those books are probably more applicable to criminal/family (in Langford's case) law. However, I have been reading into clinical negligence which has been insightful - hopefully will enjoy that module.
I've been reading Bingham's "Rule of Law" too - it's fascinating.
Will need to listen to the BBC podcast - thank you for the recommendation
