What does this mean?

What this means is that by having personally analysed thousands of transcript pages, all the hard work of reading, understanding and translating the minds of the judges and courts is something you can finally say goodbye to. Each case also includes hand-selected and fully OSCOLA referenced citations that can be quickly inserted into written coursework (or moot skeleton arguments) without you having to hunt for them.

For example you could choose to traverse this complex twenty-six page judgment transcript:

Davidson v Scottish Ministers (No.2)

Or you could simply purchase ‘The Case law Compendium’ and read this instead:

Davidson v Scottish Ministers (No.2) Book Sample

Thereby saving yourself significant time and confusion while taking in the information that is truly relevant, and with ‘The Case Law Compendium’ you have the additional user benefit of pre-selected and fully referenced citations to gain greater insight and use for coursework where needed.

By simply having a copy of this study resource close to hand you will now be able to effectively engage in tutorial debates, improve your essay writing abilities, and expedite your knowledge in a multitude of legal fields, without the pain of decoding the legislation and application of jurisprudence.
