How to avoid copying the entire AQA law book? It all sounds important and it is much harder to pick out the key points and summaries them? Anyone have any advice or tips? I just started year 12!

I have this issue too with presentations and what not. With cases just try to get the X v X (xxxx) and then a small summary of what happened.
With more practical law like law making, just try to again make small lists.
Try to keep your notes basic but have enough info that they can trigger your memory when youo over tyem.
Eventually you may find that some things keep repeating themself or are really similar, when you get to criminl or civil law for example, with this you wont need to.make as many in depth notes cause the basics will be similar enough for you to know (eg if you learn the basics of negligence you wont need to detail the negligence for each and every case or law).
I'd actually reccomend you just have a read through the book first without taking notes, just so you can get used to things like the language and repeating themes, getting that very basic grasp is really important

That is so helpful thank you! Do you have any tips on how to summarise cases because some can be quite lengthy and confusing so it can be hard to pick out the key bits?

Thank lovely!

Look through exam questions relating to the content you've done, mark it, make a model answer according to what the mark scheme says is potential content and that's what you need to know for said area.

with cases its important to seperate it into the crime and the issue with the crime. So when you cite a case you are doing it for a reason, lets say murder is tge crime you are looking at, you need a case that involves murder and that case needs to have an argument. So for example R v White 1910, the crime in question was murder (technically attempted but tge issue at the time was was it murder), and the argument in that case was did Whites act of poisoning his mother (or attempting to) almost immediatley prior to her death amount to murder?
The actual facts of this case are really long, white brought cyanide in order to kill his mother. he put it in a glass of.milk then gave her the milk with the intent of her dying, the mother took a very small sip and then went to bed. in the night she died from a heart attack that ws proved to be unrelated to the cyanide, White wa arrested and eventually charged with attempted murder because the Actus Reus for murder was not satisfied.
But you dont need all that info when mentioning the case, ll you need it: R v white 1910, white put poison in moms milk an she later died but not from the poison, whites actions were not a substantial and operating cause of the death ergo not murder.
you jist need to pick out the really cruicial parts, most of the time that is the crime in question and the defence or loophle that is trying to be used and why it failed or succeeded
