Course Notes is a series designed for students keen to understand the law and succeed in undergraduate and GDL/CPE law conversion modules. Expertly written example sets of notes are followed by opportunities to test one's knowledge by creating and maintaining summaries of the key points. The course notes are reinforced with workpoints to test analytical, communication and organizational skills; checkpoints to test recall of the essential facts; and research points to practice self-study and gain familiarity with legal sources.

Key Cases is a simple and effective way for undergraduate, LLB, ILEX and PGC students to memorise and comprehend leading cases for exam success. Mind maps summarize main points, and clear symbols help distinguish key components such as important facts, laws, principles and judgements. Cases for comparison and contrast also are highlighted to illustrate alternative opinions and perspectives.

Written, updated and edited by experts, the Key Facts series is particularly useful for tackling new topics and is invaluable for consolidating knowledge during revision. Diagrams, charts and tables summarize main points and break down complex information, and structured headings allow for clear recall of the main facts. Essential and comprehensive, the Key Facts series is perfect for anyone studying the law, including LLB, ILEX and PGC courses.
