Skills for Law Students is an innovative new online resource which covers all of the skills that law students need to understand and develop during the course of their law degree. It includes clear, practical advice on how to develop your skills as well as over 170 interactive activities to test progress and to help put the theory into practice.
Skills for Law Students is unique in its approach to the teaching of legal skills. It is an online resource with an accompanying textbook. This innovative approach encourages blended learning and supports flexible learning and self-directed study.
Each of the 32 chapters deals with a separate skill. Each chapter contains two key elements: the text providing an overview of what that skill is; why it is important; and how to develop it and interactive activities which enable students to understand the topic better; to put the skills into practice; and to self-study and receive immediate feedback on their progress.
