CaseCheck, the online case law database, has published Studying Law: An essential guide for law students. Free to all subscribers, it recommends techniques that students can use to help make law a more manageable subject.

Presented in one easily searched document, the guide aims to help make studying law easier. Each chapter covers some of the basic elements of studying law, including lecture and tutorial preparation, an overview of how to write on the law intelligibly and effectively, and how to find and cite legal sources.

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. The Digest is also a handy study tool, providing law students with an insight into the most recent developments in the courts and the legal issues that remain contentious all within one consolidated document.

Three editions of the Digest are currently available. This year’s autumn edition will be released shortly. An extract of 2012 annual Digest can be found here.

Studying Law is easy to navigate, printable and available across a wide range of devices. Subscribe today to download your free eBooks and access a range of time saving features, including access to the search function and a personalised virtual library.

Inbound marketing for law firms – For those about to flock

Chris Davidson Moore LT

Written in honour of Malcolm Young, recently deceased founding member of AC/DC, there are nine references to AC/DC songs throughout this article. We will send a £20 iTunes voucher to the first person who gets in touch to tell us what they are. The forces that are driving change in the legal profession are wide and varied. The ability of law firms and individual solicitors to respond positively and innovatively to these challenges will determine who survives and prospers. Competition for new business is fierce, a dog eat dog world, one might say. Which brings us to AC/CD. Not my favourite rock band, but an acronym for Attract, Convert, Close and Delight – the four pillars of inbound marketing.
