Overview


Legal Skills encompasses all the academic and practical legal skills essential to the law student in one manageable volume. It is an ideal text for first year law students and is also a valuable resource for those studying law at any level.

Clearly structured in three parts, the book covers the full range of legal skills including finding and using legislation, writing essays, answering problem questions, mooting, and more. The book contains many useful features designed to support a truly practical approach to legal skills. Self-test questions and diagrams are set in a user-friendly color design. Longer activities with step-by-step guidance provide a grounded, 'hands on' experience of tackling a variety of legal skills from using cases to negotiation. Each skill is firmly set in its wider academic and professional context to encourage an integrated approach to the learning of legal skills.

Online Resource Centre

The book is accompanied by an innovative online resource centre offering a range of resources to support teaching and learning. Video clips of good and bad 'real life' moots in action bring the subject to life for students. Lecturers can track student progress using an online bank of 300 multiple choice questions offering immediate answers and feedback that can be customised and loaded on to the university's VLE.
