    For a law essay all you do is memorise the facts and then you string them together in sentences and this is how you write good essays. My teacher thinks my essays are GOOD so
    Oh, right. This is AS/A-level, I presume? What about other essay subjects?

    ps. my teacher thought my gcse history essays were good as well (relative to my age etc). it doesnt mean they actually were or that i was hugely skilled in writing perfect essays. it just means that the general standard of essay-writing among most students is pretty low - if you manage to use paragraphs you're one up over a lot of people already. in year 11 I wrote an a-level sociology essay for my boyfriend - he got an A - and his teacher asked if his mum (with a degree in sociology) had written it. which doesnt say much about the general standard of A-level essays, really.
