Achieving results is not just about learning the law. It's about learning to execute exams.

Exam Strategy

Understanding effective exam strategy plays a fundamental role in guiding a student's efforts during their revision period. Most law exams set essay questions and problem questions. Essays are always based on some common academic controversy.

Are you focusing your preparation work on these controversies? What are your positions on each examinable controversy? What issues do you anticipate might crop up in problem questions? These primary questions should frame a student's revision period and are usually tackled during trial lesson.

Problem Questions

Problem questions test your lawyerly ability to diagnose the legal consequences of facts.

Problem questions are sequential and will always follow a familiar pattern. Your facts generate legal claims between the parties. Each claim splits up into a sequence of constituent legal questions as prescribed by the relevant area of law. In this way, problem questions are highly compartmentalised. Use this to your advantage when revising.

Becoming proficient at problem questions requires mechanical, compartmentalised learning and practice. You need to familiarise yourself with the sorts of fact patterns that your examiner will set and the sorts of sequential reasoning you will apply to answer your questions.

These ideas and more are explored in our standard introductory lesson which is free for new students.

Essay Questions

Essays do the opposite thing to problem questions. While the latter test your knowledge of specific laws as they relate to specific facts, the former test your ability to analyse the law within its broader context. Is the law achieving its aims?

Essay questions subdivide into 3 categories: (1) What is the law?; (2) What should the law be, and (3) What has the law been? Most essay questions are a combination of 1 and 2. Your task, in any essay, is to present a persuasive argument in response to one of these questions.

Underperforming students fail to consider the mechanics of argumentation. When is something persuasive? What makes an argument sophisticated?

Invariably, essay questions target uncertain or contentious areas of the law. So, a student might what to start by asking themselves the following sorts of questions:

• What are the contentious areas of law on my course topics? • What are my positions on these areas? • What makes my positions persuasive and sophisticated?

These ideas and more are explored in our standard introductory lesson which is free for new students.
