    Apologies if there is already a thread of a similar nature...

    I am seeking advice for this module from those who have passed and actually understand!

    I know it is more philosophical and is legal theory based than actual law and that there are a number of theorists we are studying but what is it we really need to know? Particularly for the exam, what are the main things I should be focusing on?

    Thanks in advance!

    Really depends on how the course is run at your particular university.

    That being said i was under the impression the majority of Law courses are infact really quite similar... I realise Juris is so wide you could focus on different areas but i think the idea is to give a general experience/impression. The main core areas of Juris are surely worth talking a bit about? ... perhaps not, time shall tell!

    Jurisprudence is so wide, I didn't think of that, people will be learning different things.

    Should I be focusing on the views of each theorist? So far, all we have looked at are the views of Hart, Austin, John Locke and so on... It is a nightmare of a subject!

    It really does depend on your uni so contact your lecturer and ask him/her about how to go about structuring your revision.

    For my course, we've focused on Aristotle, Grotius, Hobbes, Hart/Fuller and Finnis
