Welcome to the Law Student Survival Guide! Now in its third edition, authors Professor Claire Macken and Dr Kath Hall draw on their experience teaching in law schools to provide you with practical advice on how to make the most of and do well at law school.

Inside you’ll find information, tips and checklists, presented in an easy-to-read style, on key topics including:

  • what law school is all about, why your motivations for studying law are important and how to be happy at law school;
  • effective study, including how to create a positive study environment, what resources you need to study law, how to prepare your study notes and easy tips for reading legal cases;
  • the importance of managing your time including top techniques to help you study better and schedule your commitments;
  • how to do legal research and analysis, including a step-by-step guide on planning and writing a law essay;
  • preparing for and sitting law exams including a detailed discussion on how to apply IRAC (Issue, Rule, Application, Conclusion) to a problem-based exam question;
  • dealing with the stress of law school and maintaining your wellbeing and identity at the same time; and
  • planning your future including recognising the skills your have learnt and identifying the range of legal and non-legal career options open to you.

This guide has already helped hundreds of law students around Australia survive (and thrive) at law school. We hope it helps you too!
