While a good part of legal education will take place in classrooms and lecture theatres, successful learning in law also relies to a great extent on individual, autonomous study: reading, research, thinking, and reflecting. Learning law is about much more than what and how law is taught. This chapter looks at the crucial role of the student in the learning process, and how they may be able to enhance their learning in law by understanding learning strengths and working with them. It also focuses on effective reading, research, note making, and reflection — how to make best use of time and the materials available.
