Blueprints act as a primer for the deeper study of the law. They're more substantial than a revision guide (but more succinct than a course textbook) and they're to be used throughout their study, not just at revision time.

They provide an overview of the law: the structure of the subject and how the topics fit together in the big picture. Blueprints provide a unique plan for studying the law, giving a visual overview of the fundamental building blocks of each topic and the academic questions/various outside influences that come together in the study of law.

Blueprints USPs:

  • Students can struggle to "see the wood for the trees" when grappling with cases, legal definitions and complex processes. This series draws the students attention to the larger framework and enables them to place everything within their proper (and memorable) context.
  • Other books attempt to present the letter of the law in basic terms, using features to distil and highlight important bits of knowledge. Blueprints goes a step further by presenting the study of law as both an academic subject and a force in society (our day to day living).
  • The visual learning is impressive and unique. It provides a clear understanding of legal study and an engaging introduction to each subject.
  • Blueprints should appeal to universities as a non-threatening learning resource that could be used harmoniously alongside materials the university provides or recommends. They are compatible with popular course structures.
