This paper considers the responses to a survey conducted across seven “new” and two “old” universities which was designed to elicit students' views of their experiences of learning on UK undergraduate law degrees. In total 1440 questionnaires were completed, a response rate overall of 63%. Although the main aim of the research was to obtain an understanding of the different perceptions of a range of learning environments from traditional lectures to the use of podcasts, wikis and blogs, the students also provided useful feedback on use of textbooks, issues relating to transition into university study and the role of assessment in learning. Students also answered questions addressing their intended careers and commitments which impacted on their time available to study. This report indicates how the modern law student approaches the study of law and, more importantly, how law teachers can support their learning.
