Although I agree with the previous reviews for this book, in that it is quite basic, this book is still perfect for the undergraduate law student.

Before the commencement of your first year, trust me, buy this book, study it over the summer, and you will reap the benefits throughout your course.

It has acted as a fantastic aide memoir throughout my degree, and as its contents cover almost every element of the study of law, its usefulness and subconsciousness impact will stay with me beyond my degree and into practice.

I would not recommend this book for a person who is entering their final year of their degree, as many of the skills this book covers, they will have probably developed throughout their studies.

For a prospective undergraduate/GDL student however, this book is fantastic.

This book provides a simple overview for a prospective or current Law undergraduate.

However it is very basic and citations to further reading or references are few and far between which makes the author of this reiew think that the writers of the Law Student's Handbook sat down and thought 'right, what d'ya reckon we should say on this topic?' Without much regard to current legal trends, for example the book alludes to how the legal professional is set to change over the next 10 years without any detailed reference to how new market entrants and Alternative Business Structures will impact.

The quick sketch of the English Legal System is so bare and inadequately explained it was hardly worth bothering to get out the easle and sharpen the pencil. The final section on career paths; the GDL, LPC and the Bar is nothing better than could be found on the law society website or similar on the internet.

To recapticulate there are way better books out there!!!!! For example Mcbride's Letters to a Law Student (I'm not on commission I wish I was)genuinely take it from a Law student Mcbride has the essential guide ;-)

Good book to support you through your first year studies, however I definitely didn't need it with my studies and if you're a first year trying to cut back on nook buying, this one could go!
