This work contains all the beginner needs to know about the methodology of studying law. Ranging widely across legal skills, source materials, and methods of study and assessment, it introduces legal problems and describes how to tackle them, and how to look up points of law.
For more than half a century, Learning the Law by Glanville Williams has made compulsory reading for every undergraduate law student in the common law world. Now under the editorship of Professor Smith, the 12th edition has been fully updated whilst retaining the distinctive features and individual style underpinning the success of previous editions. This new edition takes account of the changes in the English legal system, study methods and legal careers since the last edition in 1982. It introduces legal problems and describes how to tackle them, how to look up points of law and how to make best use of the time available to study.
