It is an ideal text for the first-year law student and is also a valuable resource for those studying law at any level.

Self-test questions, diagrams and definition boxes are set in a user-friendly colour design. Practical exercises give the reader useful 'hands on' experience of tackling a variety of legal skills: from using cases to mooting. Each skill is firmly set in its wider academic and professional context to encourage an integrated appreciation of legal skills. Online Resource Centre The book is accompanied by an innovative Online Resource Centre offering a range of resources to support teaching and learning. Videos of good and bad 'real life' moots in action bring the subject to life for students. 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.
