Legal Skills encompasses all the academic and practical legal skills vital to a law degree in one manageable volume. It is an ideal text for the first-year law student 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 and contains many features designed to support a truly practical approach. Self-test questions, diagrams and definition boxes are set in a user-friendly colour design. Practical exercises give the reader useful ‘hands
on’ experience of tackling a variety of legal skills: from using cases to mooting. Each skill is firmly set in its wider academic and professional context to encourage an integrated appreciation 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. Videos 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 200 multiple choice
questions offering immediate answers and feedback that can be customised and loaded on to the university’s VLE.
