    First year as a Fresher or as a Law student? Well, as a fresher its pretty good! You meet some amazing people and just generally enjoy your last year of proper freedom. It's different for everyone. If you're the type of person who doesn't like going out and just stays in all the time, then you won't get the full freshers experience. Trust me, studying Law isn't that demanding (especially first year) and you will have a lot of time to go out and have plenty of excuses to miss some lectures and seminars (I took this a bit too far!).
    As a law student, it was alright. First year is usually quite boring since you don't get to pick your favourite modules. However, it isn't too bad. In the first week you attend all lectures and seminars, do all the reading and take notes, but then you don't care anymore and turn up hungover the majority of the time. But I would recommend it! I certainly don't regret picking Brookes for Law

    Hiya!
    Well we were asked to buy the latest editions - that was last year so you will probably have to get the same ones unless there are newer editions. Even if there are, there wont be much difference.
    I've bought everything on the reading list except for Introduction to Human Rights - since it was very unneccessary.

    So:
    Legal Method - 'Legal Skills' by Finch & Fafinski (2nd Edition) + 'Introduction to the english legal system' by Partington (2010 - 2011)

    Public Law - 'Constitutional and Administrative Law' by A V Bradley & KD Ewing (15th Edition)

    Tort Law - 'Law of Tort' by Cooke (9th Edition) + 'Casebook on Torts' by Richard Kidner (11th Edition)

    Contract Law - 'Law of Contract' by Richards (9th Edition) + 'Casebook on Contract Law' by Jill Poole (10th Edition)



    Hope that helps!

    Completely forgot to answer the other questions!
    I lived in Clive Booth Ensuite. Was okay - exactly what you would expect student accomm to be like. Rooms are average, ensuite is alright ish. Compared to Clive Booth non ensuite, its luxury! The only other accomm ive seen is Cheney which isn't that different from Clive Booth. It just seems a bit cleaner and more modern!

    Thinking of applying to do Law at Oxford Brookes in September 2012 and was wondering how good it is for Law? (haven't been to an open day yet,but plan to!)
    Also, do you get the qualifying law degree? Thanks! and how well is it regarded when applying for jobs?

    Hi, did you have to 'choose' your modules at the start of the year? I really don't get what that's about because I thought all modules were compulsory in the first year. Cheers.

    You do not get to pick your modules in your first year! That's for certain. You do however get to pick your modules for second and third year (unless you want a QLD in which case 4 modules will be compulsory - and you can pick the rest). Nothing you have to worry about right now

    That cleared a lot, thanks
