What does a degree in law entail?Watch
But if you do more problem questions in exams you won’t really discuss this.
It is usually a lot of learning principles with cases/laws to back then up. This year had been less rote learning due to exams being at home so you can look up the cases to add to your arguments.
However, it also involves learning a lot of cases as you said robin1123
My experience of studying a law degree has been quite varied, the assignments we were given enabled us to research a specific topic and we needed to find legislation and case law to support our arguments. Whereas our exams were a memory test of how much you know about a topic, we were tested either by answering problem-solving or essay-based questions.
We usually had a 50/50 sometimes 30/70 split for assignments and exams. Some students preferred this as they could achieve a higher grade in their assignments as they were better at essays than taking exams.
If you have any questions, then feel free to get in touch, I'd be more than happy to help
