Learning Law is an indispensable guide for students beginning their law studies. It provides the foundational knowledge and skills required for the study and practice of law, and also instils in students a passion and excitement for the law.
This text challenges students' traditional notions of the law and encourages them to think critically. Each chapter is supported by tools for self-assessment and self-reflection: review questions to revise complex concepts; 'Alternative Voices' breakout boxes, which provide a different perspective on each topic; and case studies, which illustrate how law qualifications can be applied in various settings, from traditional law firms to government and academia.
Learning Law is written in an engaging and accessible style designed to demystify the law. This text is an essential and comprehensive resource that can be carried as a practical reference throughout a student's law studies.
