Bond University, University of South Australia

The new edition of James’ The New Lawyer: Foundations of Law has been written for first year Australian law students to make the transition to law not feel so overwhelming. The book addresses the law threshold learning outcomes (TLOs), and outlines what you should know, understand and be able to do after 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.

You can expect components like expert insight videos from practitioners that help what you’re learning with real-world local cases, animations and interactivities that are embedded at the point of learning to bring course concepts to life, Concept Check questions are found throughout the text and provide instant feedback and reinforce the concepts you’re learning about in the text, and ensuring students get to have the best of both worlds, with the ability to switch between reading something tangible and studying with online (or offline!) learning resources, through the ability to search, highlight and take notes within the text for more efficient study.

Features

  • Our text has been designed with a ‘transitional pedagogy’ to assist students with a successful transition to legal learning.

  • Our 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.

  • Our interactive eBook supports you by providing practice and feedback at the point of learning.

"The overall process was easy and simple to use and purchasing
the book was effortless."

"It was the obvious option for someone on a tight budget
and didn't want a second-hand book that might already be
damaged or have someone else's notes in it…"
