The Law Student's Handbook offers a practical and informative guide to studying law. It introduces the ways in which law is taught, then covers in detail the practical study and academic skills required to study law. The authors complete the picture by looking ahead to legal careers. This is ideal as pre-course reading for prospective law students, and can also be a valuable point of reference during the first year and throughout a law degree. Summary points, tip boxes, and margin notes encourage students to actively engage with the material, while the Online Resource Centre provides a wealth of additional information such as information about law courses and sources of postgraduate finance. The online multiple-choice questions offer students the chance to check their understanding and appreciation of the issues involved in studying law.
