First Year Law

The first year of law school might be described as 'exhausting, exhilarating and illuminating'! The first subjects you study in law are often seen as a steep learning curve. The study of law requires critical analysis and reasoning, not only your ability to identify and understand the law from cases and/or legislation, but to apply that law to a set of facts.

Although simplified to the acronym "IRAC" or Issue Rule Application Conclusion, sometimes it's not as easy as it sounds!

So to assist in your introduction to studying law, check out our skills development series - especially designed for First Year Law.
