The New Lawyer has been updated to ensure that first year law students do not feel overwhelmed by the transition to law school. With updates in the content and statistics, this new edition has been written in an easy-to-read style specifically with students in mind. 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.

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.
