hi i am a new student of law and am really interested in the subjects, but will want to know if there is a systematic approach of studying the subjects. The professors in my class are able to follow only whats there in the textbook due to constrain of time. i am really interested in the subject and would like to know if there is any particular methodology of studying. should i first understand some basic stuff before i start reading the subjects or should i just proceed by reading the textbooks and cases? your opinions will greatly help.
