Abstract: Legal studies occupy an important place in Colleges of Further Education as a necessary constituent of vocational training for business appointments. At the same time the ubiquity of legal considerations make such studies invaluable as part of a person's general education. This work is an enquiry into the extent and nature of these studies and an analysis of the information produced in order to test the validity of the many generalisations made concerning the teaching of Law. Both in quantity and in standard of work, Law is comparable with the other basic commercial subjects of Accounts and Economics. It appears in many courses and the characteristics of each will be outlined and discussed, with particular attention paid to national certificate, professional and degree courses and courses provided for the legal profession. Textbooks and library facilities, so important in the ease of Law, will be examined. She following four chapters will be devoted to syllabuses and examinations with emphasis upon the subject General Principles of Law, and its value as a first subject for legal study. Analysis of syllabuses and examination papers shows wide variation as between different examining bodies. Qualifications and duties of full-time and part-time lecturers will be examined together with the problems arising out of their appointment. The work ends with a discussion of the principal problems found in the teaching of the subject and some of the techniques and methods of presentation used in an attempt to overcome these. In conclusion, an attempt has been made throughout to suggest possible lines of future development when a considerable expansion of further education, foreshadowed by the Robbins Report, is anticipated.
