The value of a degree to the state

 Some recent research has established that the state ‘gains ten times what it pays for graduate students’. The figures, shown in a BBC News report and based upon a study – Further, Higher? Tertiary Education and Growth in the UK’s New Economy, indicates that graduates bring in £180,000 a year to the nations economy (a degree costs £18,800 per student).

The report noted that in 2000 the UK had the third highest number of graduates among advanced industrialized nations. By 2008 it had fallen to fifteenth because competitor nations had been investing at a faster rate, the report says.

Laws Exam Q Planning/Writing Frames

writing Laws exam papers/questions often require a different approach/structure. 

Below are links to Planning/Writing Frames/Advice for AS Law and A2 Criminal Law.  Laws students are advised to make use of these ‘Planning/Writing Frames’ (and the below information) when planning answers to examination/homework questions. Logically, if you cannot plan it – you cannot answer it.
