Well, the workload is different depending on what grades you want to get.
For a 3rd, you just need to go to a lectures, look over slides for revision and then plop all you know onto the exam paper.
For a 2:2, you need to do the exact same, maybe read a revision guide, and then make your answers more relevant to the question.
For a 2:1, you need to read your textbooks thoroughly. I usually read at a pace of about 10 pages an hour, to get a good amount of notes. You'll be reading around 200 pages each week. Then, when answering your questions, you need to make your answers relevant , get under the skin of the question and analyse it properly.
For a 1st, you need to include a lot of articles in your reading - know your modules inside out and get to grips with all the contentious aspects of it by fully reading the relevant parts of key cases. Answer your questions impeccably, and don't just settle for a "this person is guilty because A, B, C" include reasons why he wouldn't be guilty as well, and then weigh them up at the end.
3rd - lecture slides
2:2 - lecture slides, revision guide and basic exam technique
2:1 - 20 hours independent textbook reading and advanced exam technique
1st - 30-40 hours independent reading, including textbook + articles, fully read the relevant parts of important cases and impeccable exam technique... And luck.
Regarding the second part of your question, it totally depends on your University/Lecturers. We didn't need to prepare "presentations", but we did have to do mandatory mooting.
