This book deals with the major hurdles that all students must face: examinations. To overcome this barrier, it is important that the exam process is fully understood by students and that the techniques used by successful examinees are thoroughly mastered.
Written in a clear, accessible style, Exam Skills for Law Students demonstrates how good students can do themselves justice in examinations by using the knowledge that they have acquired to full effect. The authors suggest ways in which legal arguments can be marshalled and identify methods by which both essay and problem questions can be tackled. Examples are drawn from the core subjects of contract, criminal law, public law and the law of torts, although techniques illustrated can
be applied to many other areas of law. This will be an invaluable aid to any students taking academic law examinations.
