Books a Law Student Should Refer in their Law School Journey, Always Latest and Best

 

Law school can be a daunting experience, but it is also a very rewarding one. By studying the law, you can develop the skills and knowledge necessary to make a real difference in the world. One of the best ways to prepare for law school is to read books on the subjects that you will be studying. The right books can help you understand complex legal concepts, develop your critical thinking skills, and learn how the law is applied in practice.

In this post, we will recommend a list of books that every law student should read. These books cover a wide range of subjects, including the Constitution of India, contract law, specific relief, law of torts, CPC, CrPC, IPC, law of evidence, transfer of property, Hindu law, Muslim law, and the Limitation Act.

Important Instructions

1.   The Bare Act is the keystone of each law; wherever it is recommended, it is essential to have it.

2.   Instead of purchasing a bare act for each subject separately, we recommend you to purchase them in a combo offer, which will be more cost-effective.

3.   For each subject, books are mentioned in a logical order. If you feel unsure about which book to purchase even after going through the reasoning provided in front of each book, then carefully review that list again; it should help.

4.   There is considerable confusion regarding three Criminal laws. As of now, there is no indication of their enforcement date and pattern. Most likely, they will be enforced in phases. Until then, the old laws will remain in effect and will be asked in exams, so it’s better to study the already enforced laws.

5.   The list provided here is not exhaustive. Like this list, we are also subject to constant improvements. Therefore, whenever you have any suggestions, please share them with us.
