Mind maps are a useful visual tool for organising, revising and remembering Company Law topics.

They are useful for:

  • gaining an understanding of a topic, its subtopics and legal issues each week
  • preparing for exams.

For each topic, follow these steps to make a mind map:

Step 1: Select the key points from your lecture notes and readings.
Step 2: Decide and organise the subpoints under each of the key points.
Step 3: Add the correct information. Statutes and case law under each subtopic.

Ongoing revision

After each topic make a mind map of key topics, subpoints, legal issues and relevant statute and case law. Complete these mind maps after each lecture topic when the content is still fresh in your mind. This will help build your knowledge of the law.

Exam preparation

To revise your knowledge of Company Law redo your mind maps after each topic. Your mind maps can be used as a guide when answering tutorial questions and as preparation for exams.

Take notes while reading your textbook. Highlight the important points and make notes in the lecture PowerPoint handout.
