Synopsis: Legal Skills encompasses all the academic and practical legal skills essential to the law student in one manageable volume. It is an ideal text for first year law students and is also a valuable resource for those studying law at any level. Clearly structured in three parts, the book covers the full range of legal skills you will need to succeed from the beginning of your law degree, through your exams and assessments and into your future career. The first part covers 'Sources of Law' and includes information on finding and using legislation, making sure you understand where the law comes from and how to use it. The second part covers 'Academic Legal Skills' and provides advice on general study and writing skills. This part also includes a section on referencing and avoiding plagiarism amongst a number of other chapters designed to help you through the different stages of your law degree. The third and final part is dedicated to 'Practical Legal Skills'; a section designed to help you to develop transferrable skills in areas such as presentations and negotiations that will be highly valued by future employers.The book contains many useful features designed to support a truly practical approach to legal skills. Self-test questions and diagrams are set in a user-friendly colour design. More extensive activities give you the opportunity to take a 'hands on' approach to tackling a variety of legal skills from using cases to negotiation. Each skill is firmly set in its wider academic and professional context to encourage an integrated approach to the learning of legal skills. Online Resource Centre Legal Skills is accompanied by an innovative online resource centre offering a range of resources to support teaching and learning. - Video clips of good and bad 'real life' moots in action bring the subject to life for students. - Practical exercises appear throughout the book so you can test yourself on your essay writing, problem solving, revision and exam skills. - Examples of good and bad answers to these exercises appear on the online resource centre providing insight into the varying approaches that can be taken to the same question with commentary on the strengths and weaknesses of each answer.- Lecturers can track student progress using an online bank of 200 multiple choice questions offering immediate answers and feedback that can be customised and loaded on to the university's VLE.
