with trials coming up, can people share their methods for studying for legal that they are doing or have done in the past because there seems to be a shit load of stuff to memorise with crime, hr and 2 options..

I got 1st for my legal studies trials and these are some of the tips I used:
- Memorise the legal studies syllabus using flashcards (especially crime)
- Have three cases memorised for each part of the crime syllabus since you don't know what the essay section will be on about (I had about 15 memorised)
- For the two other topics you should just have some broad cases/media/legislation
- Do the NESA multiple choice questions and also find some strategies
- Remember to always reference rearhamp and themes/challenges in your essay
-Don't waste time on writing study notes and more on remembering what you have and testing your application
- Last but not least PRACTISE! I did like two essays each week coming up to the trials and I would give it to my legal teachers to mark for feedback

Also do heaps of HSC and past trial papers, questions are usually very similar
