Resources for Law Students

 Over the last couple of years, I have found that there is a wealth of authoritative and inspiring  legal information out on the web. I thought that it would be useful to gather some of it and offer it up in one place. Some of it may be more Bar-orientated, but much of it is suitable for any law student, no matter which direction they ultimately intend to take. Listening to these podcasts and reading the information on these websites has enriched my learning, quite often by putting the theory into practice or just discussing the contemporary issues around a legal topic. For legal blogs that are worth investigating, please check out the Blogroll to the left of the page. I thoroughly recommend all of the following:

Law In Action – Radio 4’s legal magazine programme, presented by Joshua Rozenberg. Currently has 32 previous programmes available to be downloaded as podcasts.

Unreliable Evidence – Presented by Clive Anderson (a former barrister), this programme tends to cover more theoretical and ethical aspects of the law. No podcasts available, unfortunately, but there are links to the BBC iPlayer so you can listen online.

Without Prejudice – Rioja-drinking law talk with Charon QC

OUP Online Resource Centre – Designed to accompany Oxford University Press text books, this site has revision resources and further weblinks to enhance your study.

Guardian Law – Comprehensive coverage of all the legal issues of the day (my dissertation topic was borne from an article I read here)

Lawbore – Run by City University, this is a fantastic resource that has been intuitively laid out for the law student.
