The Law Student's Handbook

Second Edition

Steve Wilson and Phillip Kenny

  • This handbook is designed to help develop essential legal study skills in an accessible and user-friendly format
  • Features such as hint and key point boxes, examples and checklists help to clarify the information and encourage active learning by students
  • The online resource centre provides a wealth of additional information, such as law courses and sources of postgraduate finance, as well as student testimonials to create a complete learning and reference resource for law students
  • The focus on key study and academic skills provides students with the means to understand and fully engage with the substantive areas of law that make up their law degrees

New to this Edition:

  • The section on joint honours degrees has been expanded to reflect the increasing popularity of combined degrees. It includes joint degree options; year abroad options; how to convert to a vocational law qualification; opportunities to practise abroad once qualified; pros and cons of studying a joint degree
  • An 'author's introduction' has been added to the prelims providing a clear outline of who the book is aimed at and how the author envisages the text being used. This complements the guide to the book and guide to the Online Resource Centre
  • Additional student testimonials are included on the Online Resource Centre to include students from a range of institutions and backgrounds including mature students
  • The online resources are presented in a clearer structure to reflect the new parts in the book. The resources have been broken down into resources for prospective law students, current law students, and for those students who are looking ahead to their future careers
