Reading, understanding and applying laws
The study and practice of law is often considered difficult because of the sheer volume of information
that needs to be read, understood and applied, whether in a case study for a professional exam or as
part of providing advice to a client.
In this session, Jeff Heasman combines over 20 years of experience studying law, working with the law
and teaching law to students and professionals across the world, to provide invaluable skills that will
help you read laws more quickly, better understand those laws and then apply them in a logical and
clear way, whether for a case study as part of a professional qualification or for when providing advice
to a client.

Learning outcomes
By the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:
➢ identify key skills in reading and understanding laws.
➢ recognise how to assimilate the knowledge gained and apply the law to a case study or
provide advice to a client in a logical and clear way.
➢ implement a strategy to read, understand and apply law more quickly and effectively.
