The New Lawyer, 3rd Edition has been updated to ensure that first year law students do not feel overwhelmed by the transition to law school. This book addresses the law Threshold Learning Outcomes (TLOs) and outlines what students should know, understand and be able to do at the conclusion of their first year of study.

Available as a full colour printed textbook with an interactive eBook code included, this title enables you to master concepts and succeed in assessment by taking the roadblocks out of self-study, with features designed to get the most out of learning. 


  • Accessible: Designed with a ‘transitional pedagogy’ to assist students with a successful transition to legal learning.

  • Practice-Focused Solutions: The interactive eBook supports students by providing practice and feedback at the point of learning.

  • Threshold Learning Outcomes: The text provides a structured approach to delivering on the law TLOs. Co-author Professor Rachael Field is an expert in this field and was one of the academics that drafted the law TLOs.
