Case Preparation Summary

Case Preparation: 2007-2008 by Inns of Court School of Law

Thorough preparation is the vital first step to winning a case. Case Preparation provides students with practical advice on how to identify the relevant law and effectively manage the facts at their disposal in order to present a convincing argument. Efficient legal research is an essential skill for the barrister. In this manual all the important aspects of good research are identified and explained so that the student can feel at ease with the tools and techniques they will use in professional life. The research section of the manual takes full account of the availability of electronic resources. The skills needed to master the set of facts from which a legal action arises are fully explained using the systematic C.A.P. (Context, Analyse, Present) approach. This provides students with an efficient and reliable method for preparing watertight answers to legal problems. Realistic sets of papers are used to demonstrate this step-by-step approach, with reference to both civil and criminal cases. Further sets of papers are also provided for practising case preparation skills.
