Many law students may master the legal theory required of them but struggle to acquire the necessary academic and legal skills to pass and succeed in practice. This sentiment has been echoed over the past few years by legal practitioners and law bodies concerned about ill-equipped new practitioners. This book attempts to address the challenge of helping students achieve what is required of them and provides a basic foundation to studying and practicing law.
