Contract Law Watch
My law teacher told us (my class) at the start of year 12 that we would have to remember hundreds of cases
Was scary to hear that at first but much easier than it sounds lol
Gonna start selling chocolate wrappers now lmao
Are u doing law at a level like me? Or are u talking about university? If the latter then I’ve just made myself look a right idiot
My new teacher had been making my class read every single case within a topic. We are currently studying contract law and I feel he is making us do too much. Am I expected to remember all contract cases? If not please let me know the relevant cases.
knowing the case name + principle is the important things to remember so you know when to apply it to a given factual situation.
And watched some youtube videos of lego people acting out criminal cases, that was funny. And just kept trying to learn the case names with some visual clues (ie related to someone i know or a famous person with same name doing that sort of crime). When in the exam, i looked at what sort of law each part was on (robbery or the assult side and quickly wrote down the key case names at the start)
I enjoy reading cases. It can help you out, and when you've spent a few hours looking at a case it tends to stick out in your mind. But you need to be sensible with your time, and not just think processing lots of info will get the job done. You need to spend many more hours than you spent reading considering the principles, facts and so on -- you don't wanna start doing this for the first time in an exam.
In practice, we only really assert the principles developed from case law, but to get there you do need the legwork and learn almost by rote.
Learning a few facts about the cases is important too in order to decide if you can distinguish the scenario from the facts of the authority.
Law is voluminous. Nothing you can do to get around that fact.
