The study of law demands intensive reading and reflecting, and the development of particular skills in comprehension, analysis and the presentation of argument. Clarity of thinking and expression is the mark of a successful law student and lawyer. Many students place themselves at a marked disadvantage through imprecise and inexpert use of language.
Together with attending lectures, students are required to undertake assignments and to use the LEC's webcampus and library resources and to attend library research seminars. You will need to have a regular internet connection and a computer that is capable of accessing the electronic resources that are made available. Explore the webcampus prior to enrolling. Some tutorial assistance is available by email in the early subjects. Attendance at library research seminars early in your course will prove invaluable.
you have not studied for some time, you might consider beginning with one subject only. It
is difficult to estimate how much time each individual person should devote
to their studies. Students will need to allocate more than three hours of private study for each hour of lectures. Students also need to allocate adequate time to prepare for each class, and to research and write assignments.
In summary, take full advantage of the learning resources that are offered. While the LEC needs to balance what it can provide with the demands of financial accessibility, the LEC wishes to enhance the opportunity of every student to achieve success in the LPAB course.
