LAW BOOKS

WE PUBLISH OUR OWN COLLECTION OF CORE SERIES, Q&A SERIES, AND SUBJECT SERIES LAW TEXT BOOKS

All of our law books are written by highly experienced academics that are Barristers. Above all, our books on law are designed to be user-friendly and represent great value for money for not just law but all students.

The entire approach required for the study of law is extremely methodical, using the IRAC Method. So if you learn the steps and formulas early on, this will enrich your experience and save you time. It will also guarantee that your answer to a problem question is always correct, regardless of the subject in law you are studying or the law module you are enrolled in.

 

Once you have a plan, this will result in fantastic results. Our law textbooks use a one-size-fits-all approach, so you do not even need to think about how to study to get a first - it is all mapped out for you. Embedded within our law books is the methodical approach you need to adopt.

FACTS

GENERAL PRINCIPLE

LAW

APPLY TO FACTS

In Fact: simply state what you have been told, this why you can never be accused of not considering the facts. “Tom pays Dick to strike Harry over the head with a hammer. Harry dies”. You can also frame the facts into a question: i.e. Does Simon have the necessary mens rea or intention to satisfy the offence of murder?


In General principle: you simply state what the general rule of the relevant issue is. You express it as if you are speaking to a child who has no knowledge of law: i.e. Under English law, the intention will be direct whether the Defendant desires an outcome.


In Law: you state “using the authority of…..” and you go on to state which statute or case helps prove your point. In R v Calhaem [1985] 1 QB 808 it was held hiring someone to kill carries a direct intention of a specific outcome which is murder a person.    


Lastly in Apply to Facts: You apply the law to the facts. Tom has the necessary intention to murder Harry notwithstanding the act was carried out by Dick. You apply the reasoning of the case to your factual scenario. 


By using the “Fact Law Sandwich” your advice will sound and look structured and professional. The reason it is called the “Fact Law Sandwich”, is because the advice contains two outer layers of facts that sandwich the general principle and law in the middle.

WHERE CAN I USE THE LAW BOOKS?

ONLINE LAW TUTORS

We believe that learning does not stop at the classroom door, but rather that is where it starts. We are law tutors, who are experienced lecturers and barristers so we have designed our law notes and the law books we write to work for all purposes. 

Private Law Tutor publish law books that will provide you with far clearer knowledge than your law professor's 60-minute session. Take time to read notes that we provide in our books on law. It is there to expand your knowledge. Thus, when it comes time to revise, your focus can be on memorising and if you decide to do any note-taking this will be on additional information that is really valuable, rather than on fundamental subject or case law summaries. Our law book will help you to construct a knowledge store that might be invaluable come exam time for each subject.
