Please can any law students (studying at university) give any tips, advice, revision techniques on how to get a 2:1 in first year of law?

Also, how do you take notes? I used to re-write my notes when I get home which can be time-consuming so now i currently type up my notes on my laptop and edit them (as they're usually messy from lectures, typing quick), print them and highlight them and put them in my binder. I also have a case list of various key cases with highlighted keywords which I'll use for my exams and assessments (I have an assessment soon) and flashcards for all my modules.

thank you💗

Regularly review your notes, would regularly edit them. Your "understanding" should by dynamic and expand with further reading/seminars, so your understanding from your lectures should not be sufficient for 1st class or high 2:1 grades.

Next is to practise PQs, and essays. Look at past papers and see how you hold up; more importantly this will highlight gaps in your knowledge and direct your further reading and future efforts.

Hi, I forgot to mention that I don't just take notes from lectures, it's along with all my other work from seminars, workshops etc that I do every day and I do the required and further reading.

I also have textbooks as well which I refer to for my work.

I'll start completing past papers too, I haven't got round to them with all the assessments I have, deadlines etc.

Thank you

I'd add journal articles to your cases binder. They're important too.
