Description
 Are you considering studying law at university or preparing to start your first year as a law student? Studying the Law Illustrates why law is such an exciting and challenging subject to study, introducing and explaining each of the main topics taught on the degree.
Each chapter tackles a different subject, giving you a helpful overview followed by a more detailed exploration of some of the main themes. The text is written in a clear and engaging style, and gives a good awareness of how law is studied at university.
Although the subjects are diverse, each chapter demonstrates the way lawyers approach issues and problems, developing the skills of rapid appraisal of complex issues, the ability to analyse and summarise and the way to muster and present arguments for and against.
Studying the law will give all those considering or preparing for a law degree a valuable head start.
