Amazon doesn’t yet have an image but for those wondering about this year’s colour, it is a bit like the 2003 model but a slightly mintier green.

Early reviews:

“It would have been a lot shorter if I’d had my way.” T. May

“I’m honoured that my legacy lives on, at least in the colour choice.” D. Green

“The svelte nature of Phelan just goes to show how simple immigration law has become and how unnecessary Legal Aid really is.” T. McNally

“It’s very, er, weighty.” C. Yeo

“I’ve been using the 2nd edition and it still seems fine to me, but I’m thinking of upgrading to this new eye catching colour.” I. Lawyer

  1. I’d love to give you a percentage but I’ve boycotted Amazon until they start paying proper amounts of corporation tax in the UK :-(

  2. I was a bit disappointed with it. I only had a quick glance, so apologies if I am wrong on this, but….It missed the last four statements of changes – they might have an excuse for the last one or two, but to finish with the Sept 2012 ones is a bit off. And it missed the last Ruiz Zambrano amendments to the EEA Regs 2006. As there has been no statutory changes since the last edition, that in my mind makes it a bit redundant. It also continues the annoying habit of amending legislation before the amendments have commenced. So the 2009 Act amendments to the BNA 81, make the version in Phelan of the latter, just plain wrong. And they haven’t clocked FM’s very erudite critique of the s88A, 2002 Act debate either. Phelan a bit pissed off as I was looking forward to it, sad anorak that I am.

  3. Thanks Colin. I just bought mine on the Kindle at £43.22. This is quite handly, as 2 wks ago I was before IJ Nightingale at YH and Ms Elis (HOPO) and none of us had the Rules, and I had to use my small handset passing it arround the court! wish u cd get your fee!
