This book deals with the major hurdles that all students must face: examinations. To overcome this barrier, it is important that the exam process is fully understood by students and that the techniques used by successful examinees are thoroughly mastered. Written in a clear, accessible style, Exam Skills for Law Students demonstrates how good students can do themselves justice in examinations by using the knowledge that they have acquired to full effect. The authors suggest ways in which legal arguments can be marshalled and identify methods bywhich both essay and problem questions can be tackled.
