    I just found this:

    http://www.readinglists.co.uk/rsl/student/index.dfp

    That's quite handy :ninja:.

    I won't buy any books though, I'll have self restraint
    omg, thank you, that's so useful.

    as for whether you should pre-read, then, no, don't bother if you haven't been set anything. I'm doing a lot of pre-reading, but that's because I've been set it. I don't mind doing it, since they're novels anyway, but I probably wont read any of the 'recommended' texts until I get back to uni.

    I've started some pre-reading or I should say that I'm pretty much half way through...more so on the 'life of a law student' than actual academics i.e. statute books etc...

    Keeping that bit for later ( when given a reading list)

    You could always go to your local library and see if they have anything. You can read up a little bit, without having to buy a book
