    So I've got Learning the Law by Glanville Williams (revised) and the Law Machine by Berlins and Dyer....

    ......anyone got any advice on which one I should read first? I'm not an expert on Law, but I know the basics. Is one of them more 'easy going' than the other? Does one provide foundations for the other one etc etc

    Thanks.

    They're both introductory books and I imagine they cover the same things. I hear Glanville's a little heavier going though. Try them both at the same time. There's absolutely nothing wrong with reading a chapter from one and then a chapter from the other. In fact, it would probably be better if you did it this way.

    Well i know that most unis recommend if you do some early readin that you read Glanville Williams...but i tried and failed...it really is tough going to read it. Not sure about the other one I'm afraid.

    Are you applying/have you applied for law then? If so where?

    Thank you both, I'll probably try that one chapter each idea.

    I'm applying for Law this year - just getting my peronal statement ready and I wanted to say I'd read both these books, but obviously I couldn't write it without reading them - I've had them both for ages and just haven't got round to it. Oh, and I'm applying to the 'top tier' universities.

    Nice one.....which of the 'big two'???

    I wrote in my PS that i'd done some reading on law, and they did ask me about it in interview...so it was good that i'd read the chapter on law and morality the same morning

    The 'big two'? I know of no such Unis. Although, on a completely unconnected note, I always want Cambridge to win the boat race, nudge nudge wink wink.

    I'll probably go for

    LSE
    UCL
    KCL
    Nottingham

    Hehe, and I was expecting a shameless plug too! The two that I've put down (and that I'm yet to read) are 'How to Study Law' and 'Learning the Law'. ()

    It would be a toughie choosing between LSE and UCL, but then maybe I shouldn't talk in these terms...seeing as probability is stacked against such a happening!

    I'd be happy at anywhere on the list though, really. They're all nice party places (apart from maybe one).
