It also provides tips on preparing, sitting and succeeding in exams and other assessments students are likely to encounter on law courses.

Informed by the experience of the authors while law students and as university tutors, it provides practical advice essential for those about to study, or in the process of studying, law. The general suggestions and basic tips also give students the grounding in finding and processing information expected of those who enter into professional legal careers.

The guide complements CaseCheck’s Case Law Digest, a quarterly document of all the case summaries added to CaseCheck’s online database.
