City Law School launches skills website for students

Students at The City Law School have collaborated with the course provider to overhaul its innovative law portal with the aim of bringing key skills to life.

The law school asked would-be lawyers to participate in round table discussions and produce case studies for its Learnmore website (the skills wiki element of the school’s law portal for students, Lawbore) to deliver content for student learning.

The new-look site utilises technology through mixing e-learning with other types of training delivery, producing both written and interactive elements.

Creator of Learnmore, law librarian Emily Allbon, said: “Our emphasis was very much on bringing key legal skills to life via visual means. We’re confident this new website will improve the overall student experience at The City Law School.”

Learnmore strongly focuses on six core areas including; mooting, research, writing, exams, careers and a ‘newbies’ section for beginners.

A combination of talking slideshows, video guides and bespoke presentations form the mooting section, while video slideshows and search articles encourage legal research.

E-Learning is quickly becoming the norm for many law schools across the country, with the College of Law scrapping lectures all together in favour of i-tutorials.
