Using a clear and down to earth writing style, with fully worked examples and case studies throughout, the authors show the student how to build for themselves competence in the core legal skills, both in the context of legal practice and in the academic study of law.

The book shows how acquisition of all the 'DRAIN' competences - drafting, research, advocacy, interviewing and negotiation - are in fact underpinned by careful legal and factual research and the ability to communicate with and understand the client.The second edition of this highly acclaimed book now addresses the needs of both LPC and BVC students and the authors have broadened the focus to include the needs of the undergraduate or conversion student.

The book is relevant to all lecturers and students who recognise that a deep understanding of the practice of law is not only part of a rounded legal education but will cast light on the study of all law subjects.
