As a law student you will be assessed in many different ways. Writing for Law is a comprehensive guide to the assessments you will encounter, with up-to-date advice on the best way to improve your work. Rather than lead you through a separate set of exercises, this guide shows you how to apply its lessons to your own assessments.
Each chapter uses learning outcomes to track your progress in a clear, manageable way. The book explains what is expected of you in different assessment types, and shows you how the marking criteria can be used to enhance your work.
