Hi All im starting thie course in feb 2013..
i havent studied since i was 18 ... 16years ago..
anyone got any advice on reading materials etc so i can prep myself
I am also starting the same course in feb 13
Ive been reading on forums and have found a number of books which might interest you including: letters to a law studen (Nicholas j macbride), the law machine and learning the law (by glanville Williams)... I've finished reading these books and they are incredible; they give you an idea of what to expect, how to organise work, note taking tips and much more. And a book that I've also read is: use your mind (by tony buzan) this book teaches you to read faster, retain more and learn more effectively (it's already helped me in work)
I hope that helps.... Let me know how you get on and if you find any other good reads
Ps I would invest in a law dictionary aswell (I've got a longman copy)
Starting Feb 2013 also - read an interesting article, relevant too I think, by HLA Hart Concept of Law It discusses the nature of 'rules' versus moral obligation/habit etc. That apart, I seek further pre-course reading, but beware to ensure it is relevant.
I have just finished the w100, 1piece of advice i would give for the course is to not leave the assignments until last minute like i did! I is a very interesting course im starting w200 in Feb! I hope u all enjoy the course im sure u will
