There are numerous published guides and online advice on how law students can read and make sense of court cases. However, less attention is paid to what is expected of students when law tutors assign reading and how students can take pragmatic steps to manage their reading realistically. Cases frequently appear on reading lists, adding to reading loads that are already unmanageable to most. This presentation looks at how students can minimise the time they spend with cases and provides justification for why international post-graduate students can often avoid reading cases altogether; this includes their need to focus on content schema above the formal schema of cases (law reports).
