HOW TO STUDY LAW

STUDYING LAW

When I was a fairly new law lecturer on the University of London LLB they gave me a new subject to teach called “Legal Skills”. This was a common sense module that attempted to give students the key skills they needed to learn "how to study law". When planning my lecturers, I used to come up with novel ways to spark a debate and get my students arguing effectively. I have always been an advocate of teaching students legal skills and show them how to study law. This is something that universities do not do. This is something I have spent 16 years doing privately as a private law tutor. Because there was a shortage of helpful material on the topic, I decided to write and publish this guide on how to study law. It is a law books that gets right down to business and details the approach that has been used by many law students before you to get consistently excellent grades throughout their legal studies.

I have now combined all your questions and all of my knowledge into a book called “How to Study Law” by Private Law Tutor Publishing. For individuals learning about legal topics for the first time, this book serves as an introduction. The purpose of the book is to educate the law student on how to comprehend, evaluate, and utilise legal sources.

LEGAL READING

There are many skills needed to be a lawyer, and one of the most important is reading. Lawyers need to read and understand legal rules, case law, and judgments. To read a judgment well, lawyers need to understand how judges think and how they reach their conclusions. This will make it easier for the lawyer to understand what is being said in the judgment and how it applies to their case. The first step in understanding how judges reach their conclusions understands what they are looking for when they are interpreting legislation. This can be done by reading statutes, regulations or other legislation that may have been considered by the judge in reaching their conclusion. The book when discussing legal reading looks at how to learn Legal Rules, how to find case law, OpenAthens, understanding how to read judgments.

LEGAL WRITING

Legal writing is a complex and demanding task. Lawyers are required to produce accurate and persuasive briefs, legal opinions, and other legal documents. They need to be able to write well in order to present their arguments convincingly. There are many skills that a lawyer needs in order to be successful at their job. One of the most important skills is being able to write well. In order to be an effective writer, lawyers must have a strong understanding of the law and good writing skills. They also need creativity and imagination in order to produce compelling arguments that will convince the judge or jury of their position. The IRAC method is one way that lawyers can use when they are trying to structure their work for maximum effectiveness.

The book looks at topic like legal writing, making law notes, good legal writing, legal writing rules, using the IRAC method, writing a first class law essay, different types of essays, it shows students examples of a first class essays. The book also talks about Turnitin and how to use it to your advantage. Furthermore, it discusses how to pass law exams, how to write a law school exam answer, how to publish articles and how to become a first class law student.

GETTING A TRAINING CONTRACT

The traditional way to become a solicitor is to train with a law firm, but with the competition for training contracts increasing, it is becoming harder and harder. The competition for training contracts has increased in recent years. This is due to the increase in demand for solicitors and the lack of supply of new trainees available. The increase in demand has been fuelled by the growth of City firms and magic circle, who have been hiring more solicitors over the last few years. The lack of supply comes from fewer people applying to become trainee solicitors than there were 10 years ago.

The competition for training contracts is fierce. The firms want the best and brightest, but there are just not enough of them to go around. Some firms will only take students from certain universities or with specific grades, while others will take anyone they can get their hands on. The application process is a long one that requires a lot of time and effort. It includes an interview, essay writing and even a presentation if you make it to the final stage. This book will give you the advice you need to start preparing for this goal from the start.

GETTING A PUPILLAGE

Why is it so hard to get a pupillage? The answer is that the competition for pupillages is high. It's a highly competitive market and there are many law graduates who want to become barristers. The barriers in getting a pupillage are vast. The advice in our book can help break things down in stages. Firstly, you have to complete your qualifying law degree and pass your Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC or whatever they are calling it now) exams. Secondly, you must find out which chambers are looking for pupils. This can be done by looking at Chambers in the Legal 500 directory or by making contact with individual chambers. If you are lucky enough to find a vacancy, it will be necessary to apply for the pupillage and go through a rigorous interview process.

 

The bottom line is you will have to stand out and if you take the advice we provide in the book it will give you insight and a head start in securing what you want. Remember that Chambers Legal 500 and getting a first in law are both ranking systems for chambers looking for pupil barristers. Those who have been ranked as top marks by these organisations will have an easier time getting a pupillage. Furthermore, the competition means the number of people who want to become barristers is greater than the number of jobs available. This means that competition for pupillages is high and this makes it hard for people without connections or top marks to get one.
