Were you a fan of Downton Abbey? Having recently seen the movie, I was feeling nostalgic about all the members of the Crawley clan and those around them. This book provides a unique way to spend more time with those who are connected to the property.
In this title, the authors examine the ways in which the law influenced what happened in the world of the Crawleys. For example, readers learn about inheritance as it applied to Matthew with explorations of primogeniture and who can inherit when a property is entailed. There are sections on other ways to inherit as well such as how Matthew inherited Lavinia’s property. Laws that affected children born outside of marriage, grounds for divorce, crime, conscientious objection in war (Thomas) and more are here.
This is a fun way to learn more about the law while spending time with well loved characters. Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this read in exchange for an honest reivew.
Note: In the archive you can find Law Made Fun Through Harry Potter.
