Product Description

Review

The Legal Practice Companion is a rarity amongst legal textbooks - it is concise, reliable and reader-friendly. It aims to provide students, trainees and newly qualified practitioners with a snappy overview of the key areas of legal practice - namely conduct, accounts, tax, wills and probate, conveyancing, business, and civil and criminal litigation - and is certainly successful in achieving this. The format of the book is original and effective. Gone are the unwieldy passages so familiar to law students. Instead, a non-nonsense and highly practical approach is employed, with text confined to short bullet points. Flowcharts, diagrams and checklists are frequently used and usually succeed in making even complex legal provisions digestible. I was impressed by the book's section on tax, which gives a clear step by step explanation of each calculation, followed by a fully worked example. Usefully, the Legal Practice Companion covers all the compulsory and pervasive topics of the LPC. It could minimise the stress of making last minute revision notes, and provide a helpful point of reference in open-book exams. As a guide and revision aid to the main areas of legal practice, the Legal Practice Companion can be highly recommended. --The Trainee Magazine, Autumn 2004

Legal Practice Companion provides a fantastic flashlight, explaining the key principles in a logical and straight-forward way, through what may otherwise be the dark days of the LPC!... For only £35, anyone studying the LPC cannot afford to miss out on this excellent text which is a great investment, a fantastic revision aid and a superb supplement to lesson. --Student Law Journal, 2012

Format: Paperback
This is not a substitute for compulsory subject course text books, or your own session notes, but it can save you stressing over last minute revision notes, because there's often not enough time to do your own properly as you go along.
The diagrams are clear and checklists and summaries comprehensive.
The only negatives are the Company Law Procedure table, which you will need to extend and expand, and the Tax section, which is a bit confusing.
Having said that, I thank this book for getting me a distinction in my compulsories. Buy it, take it to a print shop and get them to unbind and hole-punch it for you, add it to your files to take into your open-book exams.
Definitely worth the investment!

I have to say I was little sceptical about purchasing any book relating to the LPC but this is a real dream; it explains everything you need to know in an easy and understandable way. The book itself is thick and looks off-putting but don't let it, you will be amazed at the information that it contains and the ease with which you will pick up ideas and thought process you need to be a solicitor.

The flow charts and diagrams make learning and understanding much quicker. I cannot reccommend this book enough, even if you are a hard up student this book is a must.

Without question the single most important purchase you will make as an LPC student. For those of you at the C of L, you may be encouraged to ignore this book as I was. I say to you, do so at your own peril. If you wish to gain a competitive advantage and cut down on your work load, then here is your answer. You will not be disappointed.

As an LPC student the biggest problem I faced was adapting to 'open book' exams, as there simply wasn't time to look up everything that I felt I should check before committing myself to paper.
This ingenious study guide is provides instant, easily digestible summmaries of all of the key issues of the course. Although it is by no means a substitue for the reference books recommended for the course, this is an invaluable supplement.

Format: Paperback
Half way through my LPC, and this book has helped me achieve an average grade of 85% thus far. It strikes a perfect balance between being concise and comprehensive, and is formatted for easy and quick reference with its many tables, bullets, and flowcharts. I've often drawn up my own tables and notes only to find better in the book.

If only there were similar books for the electives!

I studied at the College of Law and this book was a life saver. I took it into a printers and had the spine cut off and whole punched so that I could take it into the exams and I made a really concise index for each subject so I could find what I needed really quickly. It really was worth the money and helped me get a distinction! I only wish they had done a similar book for the electives!

I am a first yr lpc student and bought this b4 My mocks. Found it really useful because it encapsulates topics, withot scrimping on detail. It does all those little flow charts that u know u should find time 2 do yourself ! Those charts help 2 digest topics if they are alien 2 you or refresh u instantly if u know an area, they can be copied in2 your manual 4 the exam, and really help eliminate any exam nerves. Id critisize the cheap paper, but not the content. Its not a typical auphoritative textbook. It really is a companion. All in all id recommend it.

This is the perfect companion to the LPC. Flowcharts, checklists, step-by-step help to answering the questions. Really concisely written. I followed the advice of a reviewer before and had the cover taken off by a printer and had some holes put in it for easy filing in my lever arch. So glad I saw this!
