How can I remember key legal terminology and definitions for my Law exams?

Create flashcards with legal terms on one side and their definitions on the other. For instance, "actus reus" on one side and its definition ("the guilty act") on the other. Quiz yourself regularly and use these flashcards for quick review.

Create a diagram illustrating the hierarchical structure of the UK courts, from magistrates' courts to the Supreme Court. Annotate each level with its jurisdiction and responsibilities.

Practice structuring your answers using the IRAC (Issue, Rule, Application, Conclusion) method. Identify the legal issues, state the relevant laws, apply them to the facts of the case, and provide a clear conclusion. Use past exam questions and model answers for practise.
