Cases (OCR)

The sheer number of cases we have to know is massive! What are the best ways of learning and recalling cases that don’t involve staring at the page and willing them to go in your head?
Is this for law? Im using the mobile app and it doesn’t show which forum its posted in 😂

So i basically just use flashcards, as like you say, cases are really hard to remember. I dont bother learning the year, unless it is highly important. I also dont tend to learn the facts of the case unless they are relevant too. But flashcards are the way to go i think, unless you think something like mindmaps might help
A good way to check you know the facts is by blurtinf
I do those three too, but im on the eduqas spec

Thank you!! Yeah, I only ever really learn the facts if it helps me out with the principle (eg ‘T v DPP -> temporary loss of consciousness is ABH -> T for Temporary). Thank you :smile:

Yeah exactly, its not necessary at A level to know the inside and out of each and every single case you study, for the most part you can just remember the name, and use it in an essay in ways such as “as confirmed in/shown in/established in*insert case*
