Heading to law school? Congratulations! You are about to embark on a course that will challenge, inspire, and stimulate. Studying law will be exciting and possibly frustrating in equal measure—it will push you out of your comfort zone—and that’s a good thing, but be it your social conscience, career prospects, or curiosity, don’t forget why you were first attracted by the law. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic this year will be like no other, however your university will have designed a programme to enable you to study law via a mixture of teaching approaches. How ever you study, law will open the door to new opportunities and skills.

We know that amid the pandemic many of you will feel concerned about how you will be taught. It is likely the first term or semester will be mainly (or wholly) online. Some adjustment from the norm is inevitable but there will still be lectures, tutorials and plenty to read, debate and discuss. With that in mind, here is some general advice to help you navigate your first year.
