Hey, just wondering what type of books would you recommend to someone who is about to study law at university.
Is there also any threads offering Law personal statement advice?

I honestly wouldn't fret too much whatsoever. Lots of people will tell you to read The Rule of Law by Tom Bingham, though, I would read it with a pinch of salt because it is quite biased. Personally however I would go for something more quasi-philosophical/sociological as it will get you to think about some of the conceptual ideas that seem to underpin our legal system. With that in mind, I would say your best bet is to go for something by H.L.A. Hart on Jurisprudence. I think his most famous book is called The Concept of Law.

I would find out what your first modules are and do some basic reading on them, for example mine was contract and public (administrative) law (and understanding law but that was a load of balls). I think I would have benefited having some idea on them.
