Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I cannot recommend Lisa’s book to students enough... I believe in demystifying the learning process and academic expectations for undergraduates, as today, many are working part-time jobs while also settling into a new environment, culture and education system as well as starting to carve out their future careers. Lisa’s book provides succinct and accessible help support to students understanding of the academic expectations for a first class law degree." Dr Amy Codling, The University of Reading.
