NCTJ law - Court Reporting


Once again a very small attendance at today's NCTJ Law session - just 6 people. If you intend to take the Court Reporting exam then you need to know that you have already missed three sessions. This exam syllabus is being taught this term - if you don't attend the sessions you will not be prepared for the exam in May. Once again - please let me know if you have elected NOT to take Court Rep. If you are taking it, it would be a very good plan if you could start attending Friday morning sessions.

NCTJ law test papers


If you've not already done so, please go to Lesley's office and pick up the EML test paper which we'll be working through next Friday. (I only have this one in hard copy so can't e-mail it to you.)

In preparation for the EML exam on January 25th, over the Xmas break please work on the questions we've not done in class from any of the three test papers which I've provided - the other two are both on the website. Feel free to e-mail me your answers - make it clear which paper you're using - and any areas which are puzzling you.
