Books to read before law school

Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016
    • Thread Starter

    As an international student, my knowledge of English law includes little more than what Lord Bingham sets out in his "Rule of Law." I would really like to know more and a book which will give a comprehensive introduction to British laws would be welcome.

    it depends on what modules youll study? you dont need to know that much about statutes it depends on the relevant case law, if you tell me your modules i could recommend some stuff

    'Letters to law students' and 'what about law' are very good introductory books.

    Considering, however, that you dived into Bingham's rule of law concept, you may wish to go for books which specialise in one area (IE criminal law) - reading the textbooks is better preparation than any generic book will ever be provided you have the will to do it.

    I assure you. Many prospective law students have never heard of Lord Bingham let alone bother to do extensive reading like what you've done. I'm telling you right here and right now. You will do well in your LLB. Keep this attitude up. This will separate you from the rest.

    As for books, this question has been asked so many times before. Do a simple search on this site and you will come across a thread with all the books that you might want to take a look at.
