If you don't have time to do sufficient reading for a Workshop, I've found them to be a worthy substitute

Please note Floatnotes should be used in addittion to, not a replacement for other work!

  • Time spent researching notes can now be spent learning them.
  • Case names are formatted differently to represent their importance, so you can start with the most important and then learn the others with what time you have.
  • Fundamental points jump out of the text, whilst important points are coloured. This lets you make sure you've got the basics before adding in detail.
  • Cut the crap. The content covers College of Law workshops perfectly and doesn't go into stuff that wouldn't be useful in an exam. You know from the start what you have to learn.

Range of courses

  • Floatnotes can be particularly useful for GDL and LLB students at institutions which do not provide consolidated content.
  • They provide condensed highly revisable content, unlike hefty undergraduate textbooks.

Tried and trusted

  • Floatnotes were hugely popular last year, helping loads of students revise fast and raise their grades.
  • Floatnotes have become a GDL essential, helping to improve understanding throughout the year, and speed up revision for the exams.

Good luck

  • We've put tons of effort into producing these notes, which we hope make your course an easier experience, make you a better lawyer and allow you to work where you most want to.
