    Are you asking about how many contact hours are involved ?

    If so, then generally speaking, less than that of science students, roughly about 10 hours per week.

    Obviously this depends on how many subjects you take in that semester (i took 3).

    however, whilst we have less contact hours than other degrees, we certainly make up for it with regards to how many hours are required in the library for independent study.

    Usually I have 1-2 hours of lectures/tutorials per day, however I will be in university for 9-10 hours of which I will be reflecting on my lecture notes from that day, taking notes from textbooks, tackling the reading list, and preparing for future tutorials.

    Some people can get away with less independent hours, however I wouldnt recommend it as you will find yourself in quite a stressful position when it comes to exams.

    9/10 hours sounds a little ridiculous to be honest. the best advice i heard was to treat law as a 9-5 job, if you do that i think youre good. I average about 7 hours preparation per tutorial per week. i think minimum you should do bar contact hours is about 4 hours per weekday but obviously in third term then you need to do about 8 hours per day everyday

    9-10 hours a day? Isnt that a bit excessive, unless ofc most of it is in the bar or other such socialising.

    Well I have found that in order to keep on top of the reading, the lecture notes and tutorials I need about 9ish hours per day.

    Obviously it can depend on how quickly you can take notes etc, but i do take quite detailed notes so maybe that is why i dedicate a little longer each day.

    I only have 2 semesters each year consisting of 2 10 week blocks so they are cramming detailed subjects into a small window of learning. My exams also start immediately after the 10 weeks so I dont have study leave that would allow me to make revision notes etc. maybe that is why I spend more time from the beginning of the term so I am not drowning by the end of the year haha.

    i do know people that average 3-4 hours per day but they barely scrape passes on their exams so it is all relative as to how well you want to perform in your exams and essays.
