Legal Skills Team

The school's Legal Skills Team helps both undergraduate and postgraduate law students with their legal skills. The aim is to ensure that every student, regardless of background or ability, has someone they can approach to discuss their legal skills.

Help available includes:

  • workshops, including how to answer problem questions and tips for effective case reading and note-taking
  • one-to-one sessions giving advice on general legal and academic skills
  • exam revision sessions, going through past exams or essays to identify strengths and weaknesses
  • advice to international students to help them adjust to studying law in a foreign language
