Hi famaz.

A Level Law is difficult to revise for, because so much of it is required learning of legal principles and accompanying case law.

I used to get my students to use A3 sheets of paper, writing a particular topic in the middle, and doing a mind map, using different colour pens, sticky notes of different colours, etc etc. There are several other ways, but this might be a good starting point for you.

It worked for those who were quite visual in their learning - colours help in sorting out eg mens rea and actus reus, and putting a key picture/emoji-type symbol alongside a case, the main points of which are bullet-pointed, can trigger recall. So, for example, an image of a bottle (or a worm!) alongside Donoghue v Stevenson can be helpful.

Then, I guess you have to sit down and try to ingest all of the information!

I obviously use flashcards but, my main source is perfect example answers, I have poly pockets of me rewriting the same question slightly different, getting 12/12 or 20/20, i think the format is harder than the knowledge so when you know the steps for a perfect answer, you should do well.
