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.
- 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.
Jeff Heasman worked as a litigation executive and senior liability adjuster before branching out into language and psychology.
Jeff holds both a bachelors and masters of law degree, is a qualified language instructor and also a certified practitioner member of the Academy of Modern Applied Psychology.
He delivers courses across the globe, either face-to-face or online. Jeff maintains a close connection to the industry by regularly providing consultancy in law and language, especially through his plain language editing service.
