Doing your best at the Auckland Law School: the tutorial factor
Staff in the Auckland Law School know that students who prepare for and take part in tutorials will usually do much better than those who do not. Tutorial questions are often previous exam questions or structured like test and exam questions. The more practice you have at such questions, the more likely you are to do yourself justice in tests and exams. Tests and exams and take-home assignments require you to show that you can write reasoned, well-structured arguments. It takes practice to be able to do this, especially under pressure. Writing answers to tutorial questions before attending will improve your written skills significantly and will indicate any areas where your understanding is incomplete.
Tutorials are held between 8 am and 6 pm. As many of the tutors are legal practitioners, the majority of tutorials are held between 8.00 am and 9.00 am and 5.00 pm and 6.00 pm.
