    I left uni at the start of my last year of Law (B.A.) as I was diagnosed with a serious illness. Now I am in remission and will return (fingerscrossed!) next October. I am extremely concerned that I will mess up -I can't really remember how to learn! It is a very big work load and I feel that even if I start now I will never be prepared! I also know that I am in need of alot of rest (my immune system has taken a battering and I get extremely weak). Any advice? I was thinking of taking a course of some kind before attending next year, so that I can at least have a good basis (as I won't be able to study with the same intensity as other students). Has anyone heard of law courses in the UK (eg weekend or revision type courses, at degree level?). Also am wondering if it is best to do a little each day on something (I will choose my subjects now and then try to save some money to buy books). Any tips or websites on learning? egroups on learning law? Do you think OU tutors will give lessons privately? Any ideas on mentoring during the course? Any other fora or message boards? I am so relieved that I have found this page - please excuse all of the questions!

    Unfortunately, I can't answer most of your questions. However, I've just had a long conversation with tommypip on law conversion courses, he seems to know a lot, send him a private message and I'm sure he will help you- he took the time to amswer all my questions!

    Try google- there should lots of law stuff on the net, I'm sure you can find something of use. Have you told the uni you're applying to about your health problems? In this case, they'll probably help, such as: allow you to take breaks in the course if it gets too much, allow you to tape lectures and give you special handouts, maybe even special tutorials. Ask them, that's the first thing I would do.

    Sorry, not much help... Good luck!!!
