Commentary

Halsbury's Laws of England covers the whole spectrum of English law and is designed to enable practitioners to answer the full range of questions likely to arise in the course of their work. It provides the only comprehensive narrative statement of the law of England and Wales, containing law derived from every source. Written by or in conjunction with leading lawyers, both practitioners and academics, it ensures that users benefit from a wealth of knowledge and experience.

Halsbury's Laws of England covers every proposition of English law (whether statutory or common law), and is divided into alphabetically arranged titles, making it convenient to use and enabling quick and easy research into any area of law. The text of those titles is supplemented by regularly updated annotations: all primary and secondary legislation, all leading law reports, and many specialist series of case reports are monitored for developments which affect the law set out in Halsbury's Laws.
