In this book the authors have set out to pierce that great curtain of ignorance [of the law],; this book is directed towards the general public as well as to the student and practitioner; it is a book that requires concentration and study; it deserves both… it is right to pay tribute to their energy, research and initiative and, particularly, to their clarity of expression.
Justice Niall McCarthy, Foreword to first edition
"[T]he authors have comprehensively and with clarity met their objective of covering the processes of law-making and adjudicating which are central to the legal system, are the reality of the lawyer's professional life, and, as is implied from what I observed earlier, are also the reality of the role and duty of a judge. Both the legal profession and the judiciary will definitely benefit from this book, as will academics and students of law."
