The Companion draws upon the expertise of over 700 scholars and practitioners, offering the widest possible range of perspectives on legal topics.

Cane and Conaghan succeed in providing readers with a much better understanding of law and the legal system...the Companion blends the basics to indulge the occasional curiosity with useful suggestions for further reading paths which will not let you put this book down... * Phillip Taylor *
The book provides unrivalled encyclopaedic coverage of the fundamental major areas of law, from specific laws to crimes, cases, personalities, legal events, the role of law in national and international politics, and law's underlying philosophy...and all in one place! * Phillip Taylor *
The New Companion will...function as Oxford Companions should: as an introduction for the intelligent layman who can reach for it from his own shelves. To these readers, the New Companion is warmly commended. * Edinburgh Law Review Vol 13, 2009 *
