Description

Examination questions in Evidence can seem particularly daunting to students. This book shows how to tackle successfully the sort of problems and essay questions frequently found in examination papers. The authors suggest how answers should be structured, providing advice on what to include, and on what to leave out. No matter how good your research and study skills, the ultimate test for the law student is the exam. The more preparation you have, the better equipped you will be. Blackstone's Law Questions and Answers Series gives students the opportunity to practise their exam techniques and evaluate and assess their progress. Written by experienced lecturers, the series covers all the topics found on law degree courses, CPE courses, and other undergraduate courses where law is an essential element. Each title is divided into chapters covering each major topic and contains up to fifty questions and answers. Each chapter has an introduction focusing on important points and suggestions for further reading. Each question is followed by clear commentary highlighting the essential elements of each question and indicating exactly what the examiners are looking for.
This new edition also contains bullet pointed answer plans listing the main issues to be raised in each chapter, further reading at the end of every chapter, and diagrams illuminating key points to provide students with instant confidence.
