THE SCIENCE OF LAW TUITION

WHAT IS LAW TUITION? 

 

Law tuition is not just about teaching. Law tuition is supposed to inspire the next generation of lawyers. Speaking to a senior lawyer should give a student insight not just about their study but how to become the person that they are training to become. The teaching of law is more than classroom skill. Providing law tuition is a science.


Universities cannot walk you step by step through how to become a lawyer, what steps you should or should not take. This is something which is reserved for law tuition and gained from a relationship you build with a law tutor.  

WHAT IT PROVIDES


Law tuition, with a law tutor, will provide you with one-to-one in depth discussion that will allow you have a rounded approach and understanding of all parts of law and its doctrines. Focused law tuition can help remove a one dimensional view and make a student naturally critical and analytical. Some of the most valuable things law tuition can give you are: 

 

  • the ability to think critically, the ability to not take things at face value but analyse a situation or argument;

  • the ability to form logical opinions on complex and intellectual matters based on empirical evidence/fact and natural reason; and 

  • the ability to correctly, politely, and charismatically articulate that opinion, and persuade people with it. This comes from the use of formal legal language. Law tuition will nurture and develop these skills above all. 

 

A good law tutor does not simply talk at their students, listing off cases, reciting judgements, and quote statute, these are things for a university lecture. Great law tuition does not just teach the law; great law tuition will teach students how to become lawyers. The greater understanding gained from law tuition also manifests itself through the achievement of higher grades being awarded. Law tuition ensures you understand every piece of the puzzle you need for assessments and exams. When a student has a problem, law tuition can help develop a student’s weakness making it their strength. 


As students of law, we have all felt moments of reading unfamiliar, confusing and seemingly contradictory texts, perhaps to no or misguiding avail. A law tutor will pinpoint exactly what a student needs saving them time helping them to attribute that time and energy into learning and doing more. Law tuition provides a student with a pathway.

WHY LAW TUITION?

 

Training to be a barrister or solicitor is a highly competitive and costly endeavour. Although the legal profession has made strenuous efforts to make it more accessible to aspiring lawyers from all backgrounds and to diversify its membership, the financial cost remains a significant barrier for many. Faced with the high costs of university tuition, the absurdly high costs of professional training courses, and then funding themselves through a training contract or pupillage, many graduates begin their working lives in massive debt. This, combined with the fact that there are more candidates than available training positions, creates intense competition. It has never been more critical for students to achieve the highest possible grade in their law course. Academic success and brilliance are used to determine the awarding of training contracts and pupillages.
