Hi all

Went for CLRI lectures (speed) and a bit overwhelmed by the amount of materials that are suggested to be covered for the exam:-
1. Slapper textbook
2. Study guide
3. Journals on VLE
4. Speed lecture notes

Just wondering if anyone out there with experience passing the exam and attended speed prep courses can share some hints on the subject.  Given the limited amount of time for part-time studies, would like to map out the most efficient study methodology to deal with the subject.

In particular:-
1. Study guide + lecture notes cover most of the materials required ?
2. Journals + textbook can be optional ?
3. Read from previous posts that one can prep for the exam by studying the sample ans (focusing on the most examinable areas) provided in revision classes ?

Many thanks !

Hi, I started UOL LLB last year, just finished CLRI exam in May. I am not sure whether I can pass but I can still share with you my experience.

For the materials you have listed:
1. Slapper textbook <-- I know that there will be changes to the CLRI syllabus, but I don't know that the major text book has changed as well. I used Adam Gearey textbook "The politics of the common law" and since Adam Gearey is the chief examiner of the subject and he has structured the course around his book. You can imagine it's extremely important to go thru his book.
2. Study guide <-- Subject guide is good for you getting a sense or impression of what is it that the course wants you to learn.
3. Journals on VLE <-- to be frank I rarely read journal articles, only once in a while, but better to refer to the recent developments that will be posted on student portal or Guardian's ( the UK newspaper ) law section.
4. Speed lecture notes <-- the lecture notes are written by lecturers from ATC/ITC and not by single lecturer so the quality of the notes varies. Be prepared that some of the materials is outdated, but some chapters are good.

I would say that the most important thing in taking the UOL LLB is self discipline and time management and don't ever underestimate the time and effort you have to spend

I just finished my CLRI exam as well. If you're studying on a part time basis & can't spare a lot of time dealing with the whole pile of stuffs, I suggest you scanning through the past papers & identify the major topics first e.g. Woolf Reform, Legal Aid Reform, Human Rights, etc
Then you may actually want to start reading those topics which will appear pretty much every year.
As for Woolf Reform, I sincerely recommend you to draw a timeline & note down the major modifications made after each reports.
P.S.: I did realise the trend's going a bit strange for these 2 years. e.g. one of the major topics, Woolf Reforms, didn't not appear in this year's examination while some got 2 questions (or even more) focusing on one single topic in the same paper.
Anyway, good luck, buddy!
