What are the differences between your law notes and other law notes available online?

Our law notes are written by world-class legal educators and experts with many years of experience teaching at university. We know very well how to structure the law notes for effective learning of our students. We constantly update and revamp the law notes to keep them in line with the latest legal developments. However, most law notes available online are written by students or unknown individuals without credibility. Those online notes may be out-of-date and inaccurate, so using them will do more harm than good to your legal education. Our brand UOLLB® is one of the top international brands for legal education. We have students from all over the world who make use of our highly effective law notes to get good results every year. You will have an unparalleled advantage over your peers who do not use our law notes.

How to make the most out of your law notes?

Our law notes are written by world-class legal educators and experts with many years of teaching experience at university. We know very well where you will encounter learning problems and how legal concepts and case law should be explained so that you can learn more efficiently. Unlike self-centred professors who explain legal concepts in an incomprehensible fashion, we turn difficult legal concepts into digestible bullet points arranged in a memorable sequence and supported with case law and statute law. Therefore, you are advised to read our law notes first and prepare for lessons before moving on to textbooks and lecture handouts.

What subjects are covered in your law notes?

Our highly effective law notes provide a thorough comprehension of the laws, cases, and legal concepts, covering all major LLB, PGDL, GDL, SQE, CILEX, LPC, LLM, MLaw, and MA Law modules, including Contract Law, Tort Law, Equity and Trusts, Criminal Law, Property Law, Public Law, EU Law, and more. These modules serve the core or elective subjects in the legal education process. All law students and lawyers must have a firm grasp of the relevant cases, laws, and legal tenets. We also offer law notes for specialised subjects, such as Family Law, Commercial Law, Conflict of Laws, Intellectual Property, Solicitors Accounts and Ethics, Company Law, Evidence, Criminal Practice, Dispute Resolution, Jurisprudence and Legal Theory, and Wills and Administration of Estates, helping you become a specialist with in-depth legal expertise in the areas of your choice. For case law, you are advised to subscribe to our UOL Case Bank for exclusive content of over 2000 case summaries in various areas of law.

Can I use your law notes in open-book exams?

Of course! You are allowed to make use of any materials during an open-book exam. Our exam-focused law notes are presented in digestible bullet points, arranged in a memorable sequence, and supported by case law and statute law, helping you answer exam questions efficiently. In fact, many students use our highly effective law notes to get good results every year. Most of them prefer printing out a hardcopy of our law notes for easy reference during the exam. We encourage you to do the same. We also recommend you highlight and bookmark important points in advance so that you can quickly locate them when needed.

Can I copy your law notes directly?

Relying on our law notes to answer exam questions and finish law assignments is a convenient way to complete academic tasks. We encourage you to do so, but you should be reminded that copying our law notes directly without paraphrasing is a form of plagiarism. You will be penalised if you copy our texts verbatim without proper citation in law exams. You are strongly advised to rewrite our law notes in your own words and provide in-text citations and references to acknowledge the sources. We have prepared the OSCOLA Referencing Guide to help you meet the referencing requirements. If citation is not possible particularly in closed book exams, you should try your best to rephrase in your own words. You can learn how to paraphrase texts quickly and effectively in our highly acclaimed Law Exam Skills. Please also refer to our Honour Code for how to make the most out of our law notes.

I am studying at a UK university. Are your law notes suitable for me?

Our law notes are written by world-class legal educators with reference to law programmes of UK universities and professional exams. Because most UK law schools are required to teach common topics for professional exams and for their law degrees to be recognised as qualifying law degrees, our law notes are suitable for anyone studying common law at any university or preparing for law exams, including SQE, CILEX, LLB, PGDL, GDL, LPC, LLM, MLaw, and MA Law. Many students from top universities, law firms, and international organisations also make use of our high-performance law notes. We have students from Yale University, Council of Europe, Baker Mckenzie, Columbia University, University of Chicago, INSEAD, etc. You can refer to our preview and descriptions for the topics covered in the law notes before making the purchase.

How to obtain your law notes?

Our law notes are only available for purchase on our online bookstore (uollb.com). You will be able to download the law notes in PDF format immediately after payment. So you can instantly access our top-notch learning materials without having to wait for shipment. Our law notes found or purchased elsewhere are out-dated pirated notes. Obtaining our law notes from another source constitutes copyright and trademark infringement and will incur legal consequences. If you find anyone sharing or selling our law notes, please contact us to report copyright and trademark infringement.

Is it legitimate to use your law notes?

Although our law notes will give students an unparalleled advantage over their peers in law exams, it is perfectly legitimate to use our study materials to facilitate learning and exam preparation. Our law notes are available to everyone, so all students can be assessed on an equal footing. However, we know that some students do not use our law notes, so they may be placed at a disadvantage. We therefore encourage you, your classmates and all law students to use our law notes to ensure a level playing field and fair assessments. However, please note that we take piracy very seriously, so any unauthorised distribution of our law notes and other learning materials will always result in legal consequences. Instead of breaking the law, you can refer your classmates to our online bookstore (uollb.com) to make the purchase directly.

How often do you update your law notes?

We constantly update our law notes to keep them up-to-date and in line with the latest curriculum. The latest edition is normally ready in summer before the forthcoming academic year.

Can I get an updated version of your law notes after purchase?

All students studying with UOLLB® or UOL® are valuable members of our exclusive UOLLB Community, an international support group for law students. We update our law notes every year to reflect the latest changes in the curriculum and legal developments. You can get an updated version of our law notes for free using the same download link we send you when you make the purchase. The latest edition is normally available by August before the forthcoming academic year. Please note that you can download the law notes 5 times at maximum. This should enable you to access the latest versions throughout your study. However, please be mindful when downloading our law notes and refrain from sharing the download link because the download quota cannot be replenished.

Are UOLLB and UOL affiliated with the University of London, University of Leeds, University of Liverpool, University of Leicester, or University of Lincoln?

UOLLB® is a leading legal education brand well-recognised by students and educators internationally. We are not affiliated with any of these universities, but some of our law notes are written with reference to law programmes of UK universities. UOL® is also one of our top education brands. We have trademarked UOLLB®, UOL®, and UOLLB First Class Law Notes® to protect our brand image as a world-renowned educator. If you find someone using our brand logos or trademarks inappropriately, please contact us to report trademark infringement. For more information, please refer to our Trademark Policy.

Can I get a hardcopy of your law notes?

To ensure quick access to our first-class learning materials, we have decided to make our law notes available in digital format only. You can download the law notes immediately after payment so that you can start studying with us right away. We believe this is the most environmentally friendly way to deliver our learning materials to you, but you are encouraged to print a hardcopy for yourself because we understand that some students feel more assured with physical materials in hand.

Can I see a sample?

We offer a preview covering the first 4 pages of each set of law notes. You will have the table of contents showing you all the topics that are covered in the law notes. We strongly encourage you to read the preview carefully and decide whether the law notes are suitable for you before making the purchase because digital products have a different refund policy. Please refer to our Terms of Use for more information. You can find the ‘Preview’ button below the ‘Buy Now’ button on each listing page.

I am unable to purchase your law notes with my credit card. What should I do?

We know that students may experience difficulty making online payment using their credit or debit cards. Sometimes, your payment may be blocked by your bank, card company, or our payment system. If you cannot make payment using your card, depending on your location, we can send you another payment link. Alternatively, you can send the amount to our UK bank directly. Please contact us for details.

I am concerned about online payment and security. Is your payment method safe?

We use a number of secure online payment methods, including Google Pay, Apple Pay, Shop Pay, Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Union Pay, which are the top online payment processing companies in the world. Your online payment is safe, secure, and guaranteed by these companies. Feel free to purchase our law notes using your credit or debit card or any of these online payment methods. We will not have access to your card details.

Can I share your law notes with my classmates?

We understand that our law notes are top-notch study materials highly sought after by law students all over the world. However, we grant permission for personal use of our notes only to students who purchase our law notes directly from our online bookstore (uollb.com). Some people are sharing fake or modified law notes with the intention of causing students to fail law exams. If you share our notes with your classmates who eventually fail or get poor results, they may blame you for sharing fake notes. Do not put yourself in this position and protect yourself by refusing to share notes. Sharing our law notes with anyone without our written permission constitutes copyright and trademark infringement. Any non-authorised distribution or redistribution of our copyrighted and trademarked materials is strictly prohibited by law and will result in lawsuits against the infringer. If you find anyone sharing or selling our law notes, please contact us to report copyright and trademark infringement. You will be financially rewarded if your information helps us bring infringers to justice. Instead of risking copyright and trademark litigation, we suggest you refer your classmates to our online bookstore (uollb.com) to make the purchase directly.

I saw someone selling or sharing your law notes. What is your relationship with them?

It has come to our attention that unscrupulous scammers are selling fake or modified notes to gullible law students to trick them out of money. While we take this positively as this means our law notes are highly sought after by law students all over the world, we must alert you that buying or using counterfeit notes from scammers will do serious harm to your legal education due to poor quality of the fake notes, inaccuracy of information, and intentionally altered content to make you fail. Anyone selling our law notes are fraudsters because we authorise no one to sell our law notes. Very often, these fraudsters are also scammers who will simply disappear after obtaining your money. Sometimes, they might attach our logo to any notes they find online and attempt to sell them as our law notes. Some people share notes which have been intentionally altered or left outdated to make you fail so that they can stand out from the competition. Remember that your peers are also your competitors who may set traps for you to fall into. If you truly understand this competitive nature of legal education, you should not share notes or use notes obtained from other people. You should only use notes obtained from reputable sources, such as UOLLB and UOL learning materials which are only available on uollb.com. All law notes bearing any of our logos or trademarks you obtained from any other sources are fake notes. If you find anyone sharing or selling our law notes, please contact us to report copyright and trademark infringement. You will be financially rewarded if your information helps us bring infringers to justice. Be a smart law student, say no to scammers!

I saw someone using your slogans. What is your relationship with them?

It has come to our attention that copycats are mimicking us by using our slogans such as "First Class Law Notes" to attract students. As a global leader in legal education, we expect this to happen. However, we have to warn you that these copycats are inferior legal educators who lack originality and creativity. Learning from them will do more harm than good to your integrity and legal education. As they simply copy our slogans as their own, you should be aware that they can do the same in their textbooks and law notes. We have trademarked UOLLB First Class Law Notes® to protect and strengthen our brand image. If you find someone using our logos, trademarks, or slogans inappropriately, please contact us to report the trademark infringement. You will be financially rewarded if your information helps us bring infringers to justice. Be a smart law student, learn from the true legal educator rather than copycats.

Should I buy one of your packages?

We encourage you to purchase our package instead of individual law notes for a substantial discount. The more modules included in the package, the greater the discount you will receive. For best value, please consider our All 30 Law Modules (Best Value) which contains all the 30 modules, plus our highly acclaimed Law Exam Guide. We update our law notes every year to reflect the latest changes in the curriculum and legal developments. You can get an updated version of our law notes for free using the same download link we send you when you make the purchase. The latest edition is normally available for download by August before the forthcoming academic year. Please note that our prices typically increase annually due to inflation. If you purchase the All 30 Law Modules (Best Value), you will be protected from price hikes in the following years.

Should I subscribe to UOL Case Bank?

You should if you want to save time and become a more efficient learner. Cases are notoriously long, boring and difficult to understand. Reading them will consume too much time that could be used more productively. Therefore, we provide you with access to our UOL Case Bank, featuring over 2,000 case summaries. We carefully curate and summarise cases, allowing you to grasp the essence of landmark cases quickly without having to read the full judgments.

How long will I have access to your exclusive content?

Depending on the type of exclusive content you have joined, you will have instant access to over 2,100 case summaries on various areas of law. You can access the exclusive content until graduation and possibly longer. Since UK law degree programmes typically last 3-4 years, we guarantee that you will have access to the exclusive content for 4 years, with the possibility of extension upon request.

What is the difference between UOLLB and UOL?

UOLLB®, UOL®, and UOLLB First Class Law Notes® (the UOLLB trademarks) are all our brands. In order to better represent our brand image as a global leader in legal education, we use the UOLLB trademarks interchangeably to represent our highly effectively learning materials. Whether you purchase our law notes or subscribe to our exclusive content, you will become our student and a member of our UOLLB Community. We have registered these trademarks in order to better protect our brand image as a leading legal education provider. If you find anyone using our brand logos or trademarks inappropriately, please contact us to report trademark infringement. For more information, please refer to our Trademark Policy.

Should I share my account?

We understand that our exclusive content is valuable to many law students and legal professionals. Please be aware that sharing your account is a violation of our terms of use and will lead to account termination by the system. To avoid the risk of account termination, we recommend you encourage your classmates to subscribe to our exclusive content directly.

Can I purchase your notes from outside the UK?

Our notes are available internationally. Every year, many law students from around the world study with us and make use of our highly acclaimed learning materials. You can purchase the notes using your credit or debit card from any location. However, please be aware that due to payment processing issues, your payment may be blocked by your bank, card company, or our payment system. Should this occur, you will need to transfer the amount directly to our UK bank. Please contact us for further details.

Should I use the notes from my classmates?

You should not use notes obtained from someone else or an unknown source due to the unreliability of such information and the competitive nature of legal education. Some people shares fake notes with the malicious intent to make you fail so that they can stand out from the crowd. Last year, a student failed his law exams and asked us for help. Upon investigation, we found that he had been using counterfeit notes for revision. The content had been intentionally altered or left outdated to make him fail. Be a smart law student and use authentic notes. Don't fall into this trap.

What is your relationship with UOL and its Teaching Centre?

UOL® is one of our trademarks, and we are the official UOL Teaching Centre based in the UK. Any institution claiming to be a UOL Teaching Centre in or from the UK must have our express or implied consent to use the UOL trademark in accordance with our Trademark Policy. As the UOL trademark owner, only we can claim to be the official UOL Teaching Centre. Using the UOL trademark without our express or implied consent or in a way that violates our Trademark Policy is an infringement of our trademark rights. For more information, please refer to our Trademark Policy. If you find anyone infringing our intellectual property rights, please contact us to report the IP infringement.

What will you do if someone infringes your IP rights?

We will do everything we can to bring infringers to justice because we spend a lot of time and effort developing world-class learning materials, and it is not fair to our law-abiding students who purchase directly from us. Sharing and obtaining our learning materials from unauthorised sources constitutes trademark and copyright infringement. We have instructed IP lawyers from countries such as Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Hong Kong, Malaysia and the United States to monitor the situation and act on our behalf to sue the infringers. We have delegated our IP enforcement to our lawyers, who will take all the compensation from the infringers because we want to encourage our lawyers to be proactive in pursuing IP infringement. Please note that the decision to sue infringers and the amount of compensation payable will be decided by our lawyers, not by us. If you find anyone infringing our trademark and copyright, please contact us to report the IP infringement. You will be financially rewarded if our lawyers successfully claim IP infringement.
