University of London International Programmes LLM??? How to study?!?Watch this thread
More law resources on TSR
Okay so I’ve been stuck like other students on how to pass my llm exams. The study guides, articles and stuff are not really helpful. I can’t find much information online or the library. This is a selfstudy program with no real support or tutorials. Can anyone tell me or advise me what I can do? There’s only llb groups over on FB so I feel stuck...Not really getting a response from other students either...
1. Do not panic, you have 5 years to complete the degree;.
2. Learning includes: lecturer videos; study guide, updates; textbooks, articles, and research about your country's laws;
3. Look at Youtube: Toby Boyd's video on making a study plan and the study resources;
4. Visit the Student Forum on the VLE, introduce yourself and ask if anyone else is doing your courses;
5. Choose one (1) course to start studying;
6. Start with Study Guide for Module A (it is suggested 150 hours per module);
7. Gather all the materials for the module;
8. Look at the "Learning Outcomes" - what you are expected to learn from the module or chapters;
9. Read the first chapter and take notes in your own words;
10. Think about information in the chapter and find examples of laws from your country;
11. Use the headings in the chapter as headings in your notes (and flash cards);
11. After reading the first chapter, read the essential readings and other readings and take notes and find examples from your country;
13. Learn the terms and the beliefs and theories of the main legal persons;
14. Practice with the learning activities to ensure you learned the "Learning Outcomes" as self-assessment;
15. Repeat Steps 7 to 14 for Modules B-D and then move on to another course.
15. You may choose to do the practice exam questions after completing the chapter or at the end of the module;
16. During practice, do the questions twice: first with the book open and then with the book closed to test yourself;
17. After the practice, look at the feedback section at the end of the chapter;
18. You can download past papers and examiner's reports from the VLE.
I hope this helps. If you need further advice, do not hesitate to post.
