Our books are akin to study guides they are also a study aid in and of themselves – they should be used in conjunction with your LLB book, PGDL notes, SQE study materials, or whatever else you are using to study for your exams. We provide an overview of the law, and highlight the key areas that you need to know, but it is up to you to do the hard work of memorising the law! That said, our guides can be a useful tool for revision. If you are stuck on a particular point, our books may well have the answer.
Our guides are written by barristers, so they are authoritative and up-to-date. However, if you are struggling with a point of law, it is always best to speak to your tutor or Ambrose directly. Our guides are also useful for solicitors who want a refresher on areas of law that they may not have come across for some time. Whether you are preparing for an advocacy assessment or simply want to brush up on your knowledge, our guides can help. In short, our guides can be a valuable study aid – but they should not be your only source of information.
LEARN THE BASIC CONTENT YOU NEED
Even if you are doing open book exams, you do need to study the basic content! You cannot rely on looking through your study materials to answer questions during the exam. You have a limited time period and all that counts is what you have typed (or written) and submitted at the end of the exam. Use our study tools as a guide for the key things you do need to learn – there is no way you can commit everything in your study materials to memory, and we've done the hard job of sorting out the most important concepts for you. These study tools will help guide you as your learn the basic content for your LLB or PGDL qualification, as well as prepare you for the SQE. So, make sure to utilise these valuable resources. Our books provide an overview of the most important concepts covered in your LLB books and law manuals. They also highlight learning tools and resources that will help you prepare for your exam. The SQE and PGDL are two of the most popular exams, and our notes will help you prepare for both. If you're looking for an easy way to study for your exams, our notes are a great place to start.
We all know that study can be tough, especially when it comes to law. There are so many different concepts and rules to learn, and it can be difficult to keep everything straight in your head. If you find yourself struggling with something from your lecture or seminar notes, don't despair. The first step is to consult the relevant section of your LLB book or one of the other law books. If that doesn't help, there are plenty of other learning tools available, including our study guides. These guides are designed to help you understand the material, and they include worked examples and practice questions. So if you're feeling stuck, make sure to check them out. You'll be surprised how much they can help. We have also written a book on how to study law.
RESOURCES TO THE PRECISE NEEDS OF YOUR COURSE
Our study books aim to cover most of the content of courses at a variety of institutions. However, individual tutors and law schools may take their own approach, such as teaching alternative case law. So you should listen out for what your law school focuses on – check that everything included in our book is relevant to your particular course. Our LLB book and other law books are designed as learning tools to support your study. But they should not be used instead of attending lectures, seminars and tutorials or taking part in other learning activities provided by your law school. If you are following a part-time or distance-learning course, you should check that the materials you are using are still up to date. The same is true if you are studying for the Postgraduate Diploma in Legal Studies (PGDL) or the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE). In all cases, make sure you know how your law school wants you to study – and follow their advice.
USE OUR Q&A BOOKS ON HOW TO WRITE “LEGAL ESSAYS”
Our Q&A books can be a helpful tool when learning and revising for law exams, as it provides you with a structure for thinking about legal principles and applying them to problems. However, it is important to recognise that Q&A books can only take you so far – you also need to do your own research into relevant cases, journal articles and statutes. This will help you develop a deeper understanding of the law, and it will also give you the opportunity to practise applying the law to different facts. In addition, remember that essay-writing is a skill that takes time to learn, so don’t be discouraged if your first few attempts are not perfect. With practise, you will develop the ability to communicate your thoughts clearly and persuasively on legal topics. When it comes to legal writing, the structure and argument of your essay are key to success. Q&A study books and LLB Books can give you a great starting point for thinking about how to approach a particular title. So make use of them, and you’ll be on your way to becoming a great legal writer.
