Hi!

These are the books I found really good in first year.

I don’t have any recommendations for common law, but I have some for the rest

Criminal law:

Smith, Hogan, & Ormerod's Essentials of Criminal Law

I didn’t actually use this book very much because the resources I was given for criminal were very in depth but I did find the book to be clear and pretty good

Public law:

Complete Public Law: Text, Cases, and Materials

This book was an absolute lifesaver for me-I liked the format and the information is clear.
I originally bought the recommended book by my uni but I found it really hard to read and the information wasn’t concise enough


Contract law:

Contract Law: Text, Cases, and Materials

I stuck with the recommended book for contract- I wouldn’t say it’s the best but it does have really good information. This book is good paired with a revision book like the Law Express series


I can’t stand clunky pieces of text together and I’m a visual learner so these were the books that I found to be the best, but it does depend on your preference


I’ve added links so you can have a look inside the books

Hope this helps

Devina

The ones on your reading list. These will vary by university. I'd caution against relying too much on textbooks at the expense of reading the primary materials (i.e. legislation & cases) in full.
