In problem-based learning (PBL), learning always begins with a problem (or case study) which ‘kick starts’ the learning process. One of the main benefits of PBL is that it helps students to learn to be more independent in their studies, just as they will be in the world of employment. It teaches students to analyse questions, identify relevant legal issues, and collaborate with others. It is a fresh, active approach to learning, facilitated by the structure and features of the books in the Problem-Based Learning series, all of which include: case studies; Apply Your Learning boxes; Consider This boxes; key cases and statutes; and Tutor Tips.
