There is a lot of great information about law school on You’ve Entered Law Land – I hope you find it useful!

This is a starting point to show you some of the most effective study techniques for available for law school. I’m confident that if you put in the time and effort to apply these skills, you will see your marks improve dramatically.

The IRAC method (with examples)

IRAC for law school essays and exams (with examples) – The IRAC method is vitally important for studying law, and when learnt properly will make reading legal cases and answering essay and exam questions easy. It is a relatively easy method to learn and can make your life a lot easier as a law student!

Exam scripts and skeleton answers

Exam scripts and skeleton answers – Most law schools have open book exams, but don’t let this fool you into thinking you will have time to find information in a textbook that you don’t already know. An exam script is essential for legal exams and will allow you to answer questions quickly, effectively and comprehensively.

A guide on note taking for law school

Note taking at law school – Note taking at university can take many forms – you can use a pen and paper, tablet or laptop. I recommend you try as many formats as possible, but you must understand why you’re taking notes (and it’s not to scribble down every word the lecturer says).
