The booklet is written in my own spoken English, the way you would chat to your friends about the law, not academic English, it is written as it is spoken, so if you’re looking for that amazingly grammatically correct academic law book, this is NOT it, but if you are looking for a plain English explanation of the Irish legal system, then your in the right place… Have you ever wanted to know about the Irish legal system? but every time you picked up any textbooks or even articles you were completely put off by the terminology?.
