    ---------------------------------------------------------

    As you can see this costs quite a bit for one semistar, would any past LLB students advise me on which ones to buy or what I need?

    -Any input is helpful!

    Thanks

    What subjects are you doing? Is it Roman Law, Criminal Law and a general module concerning legal systems and methods?

    Christie's Criminal Law book is a very good text. Not sure about Casebook on Scottish Criminal Law. Sounds like it has a compilation of all the cases required for your course, most of the cases will be accessible available online anyway. Scottish Legal System is also okay but a bit too in-depth, I found Learning Legal Rules to be a better text.

    The one thing I will point out is Studying Scots Law. From my personal experience, I didn't find any use for it within the course itself and treated it more as pre-course reading. It might have a section to help develop legal essay writing skills but Strong's How To Write Law Essays and Exams is a much better guide.

    And do bear in mind, these texts will all be available at your Law library so buying them isn't a huge necessity, more a convenience.

    Hi

    I just wondered if you bought any of these books and wanted to sell them on? Im sitting the Intra UK Transfer test and some of these texts are on my reading list.

    Thanks
