Abstract

Visual learning in law subjects can assist students in forming stronger connections between legal concepts, legislation and practical applications. Although higher education text books make frequent use of tables and flowcharts, the use of these tools can have pedagogical application in classroom teaching of law subjects. This article explores the way in which flowcharts and mind mapping techniques can assist learning in law subjects, including statute-based law subjects. By using the Personal Property Securities Act (PPSA) as a case study for implementing a visual learning experience in the form of an applied flowchart, it further proposes a model for integrating mind mapping techniques into the teaching of law subjects.
