For many people, the law is complex, sinister and mysterious "Your Guide to Irish Law" aims to clear away the mystery and introduces the general reader to the essentials of Irish law in a manner that is down to earth and easy to read. The book deals with problems and situations that affect people's everyday lives. It concentrates on practical questions that arise in the real world rather than on abstract legal theories. "Your Guide to Irish Law" is not a legal DIY book. It does, however, aim to equip you to deal more confidently with your legal advisors, by giving you an accurate grasp of the legal fundamental and the principles which underlie them. The authors deal with a wide variety of subjects, ranging from situations that might happen but which we hope won't (arrest, bigamy, defamation, trespass) to matters that arise from time to time in most people's lives (conveyancing, employment equality, hire purchase, holidays, voting and death).
