    For contract law, we have two textbooks. One contains an overview of the cases and principles and the other contains extracts from cases and articles. I was wondering if it's necessary to read the case extracts if I am to get good marks in exams. They are often quite long and complicated. I was wondering if a simple case summary from Westlaw, along with what my other textbook says about the case, would be sufficient, if I am to get a good mark in the exam.

    Ideally, you should read the actual cases in Westlaw - our guide would usually let us know whether we should read the whole case or whether the extract from Burrows would suffice.

    In any case, I would definitely recommend reading cases as fully as possible so you can improve your writing skills and actually get a thorough idea of the subject. Summaries should be left for revision time (beware that many are not actually summarised online).
