Packed with up-to-date law, cases, activities and questions. The workbooks are the centre of teaching law.
Each topic features slideshows to complement the workbook and provide a cohesive learning experience.
Our lightning-fast case database will allow you to quickly look-up cases to learn more or verify details and verdicts.
As a teacher, I love being in the classroom, as I am sure we all do. But these days there is much more work outside the classroom that we are expected to do - create slideshows, make workbooks, fill in reports, prepare for inspection, come up with resources that challenge our students, but that include everyone. And that is on top of the heaps of marking and contact with parents. Every time the law changes or when the exam board makes a change, we have to trawl through a mass of resources, and if you can remember where you put it, updating every relevant sentence. And then there is the expense of replacing textbooks when a new addition comes out (which by the time it gets to print, is usually out-of-date already!).
I was lucky enough to secure a publishing contract some years back and I co-wrote revision books and teacher resources for A-level Law. I enjoyed writing the books but became frustrated with the strict format required by the publishers and the limited opportunities to update the books (as I am sure you are aware, the Law changes so often it is hard to keep up!). Surely there is a better way...
That is where we come in.
EBradbury provides you with everything you need to teach the law - detailed workbooks that take your students from novice to exam ready in no time at all, but that also link to extensive slideshows for use in the classroom, not to mention mind-maps and question and answer quizzes to test your students. Ever get tired of looking at ugly and confusing case websites? We did, so we made that part of EBradbury too - with hundreds of cases for every topic our Case Search is a must-have for both teachers, and students.
Sometimes you might need an experienced opinion on teaching a certain topic, and that is why we have put together high-quality videos on teaching ideas across the board. Alongside the videos, you'll be able to contact me directly to ask any questions about teaching specific topics, should you find you need guidance.
So instead of putting in hours upon hours producing your own resources, why not take a look at the biggest resource for A-Level law teachers? We are not a huge company recycling old resources, we are here to give you the best teaching assets in the field, that are not only constantly up-to-date, but tried and tested methods of teaching the law. Want to know more about who is behind the site? Take a look at the about page. I've tried to keep the cost down but I think that if you put a price on your time, the price is reasonable.
Welcome to EBradbury, the next generation of Law Teaching.
NEW LINEAR RESOURCES COMING SOON
All resources for the new linear A level are currently in production. Due to the increase in the content required, resources will take a new format and will include 'factsheets' and ‘question sheets' rather than the current style of workbooks. These resources will be suitable for flipped learning and are created to reflect the new time constraints on teaching content. There will be new mind maps and PowerPoints and other features such as the case search, videos and 'ask Emma' will remain the same.
For the factsheets, I have followed the specifications to the letter, but for the questions, I have tried to include lots of different styles of questioning. The rationale behind this is to try to introduce higher thinking skills so I have tried to avoid simple recall questions and included questions to help the learners have a deeper understanding. This includes similarities/differences and evaluation of the law. Some of these questions may go beyond the requirements of the specification, but I believe they are good opportunities to help encourage level 3 skills, independent thought and a deeper interest in the subject matter. Resources for OCR, AQA and WJEC will be available soon:
Resources available in September 2017:
OCR - Law Making, Tort, Legal System & Criminal law
AQA - English Legal System, Tort and Crime
WJEC - English and Welsh Legal System, Tort and Crime
Resources available in September 2018:
All boards: Human Rights, Contract and the Nature of Law
Resources for the current modular specifications will remain available until June 2018.-Emma
Instead of attempting to organise these essential teaching resources by photo-copying textbooks and spending hours writing about the law, use our full-featured workbooks with your students. Packed with up-to-date information on the law, and the cases that relate to it, the workbooks are the centre of teaching law. Averaging 20-30 pages per topic, you can be sure they contain everything your students need to know. Also provided are tutor notes - with class activities and tips on teaching tricky areas of the law.
Use our online versions to quickly browse through a topic, or download copies to print-out for your students.
Alongside the stunning workbooks are Slideshows. Each topic features a workbook slide-show to compliment your student's notes, and Q&A resources. Using these in class will provide a cohesive learning experience, as students are able to follow along using their workbooks.
Our slideshows have been custom built in the browser so you don't need to install any software to view them. Simply open them on any computer that meets our system requirements and start teaching.
Case law is incredibly important when teaching the subject, and having our powerful case-search at your fingertips will prevent your students from being under-informed. Even the best law teachers can't remember all the cases off the top of their heads, so utilising our ever-expanding database of cases will allow you to quickly and easily look-up a case.
With links between cases highlighted on the site, students will quickly discover important similarities between them, serving to improve their knowledge for the exam.
Sometimes its good to get a different and experienced perspective on teaching certain areas of the law, that's why we've created this fantastic set of teaching idea videos. As well as showing you a new way of teaching your students, these videos will provide you with a better understanding of how to fully utilise the site. Furthermore we've created criminal law videos which explain the law which can be used by staff to update their knowledge or shown to students in lessons.
On top of all of that, you'll have access to handy mind-maps for use in class, as well as the useful Ask Emma page - ask Emma Bradbury any question about any area of teaching the law, and you'll have a tailored response in usually under a day. So whether you need to clarify a particularly complex area of the law, or if you want to wow an inspector, use this feature to liven up your classes.

For decades textbooks have worked wonderfully as a teaching recource, but with modern advances in communication and the web most publishers have failed to really utilise the power of the Internet. Here's how the traditional textbook stacks up:
|Material||Ready-to-use resources||Dense guidelines to be restructured for the classroom|
|Updates||As the cirriculum changes||Possibly once a year|
|Platform||Any device, any time||Printed, static workbooks|
|Cases||Complete list ready to search||Embedded between chapters|
|Reliability||Classroom-tested resources||Established creators|
|Access||Students & Teachers||Teachers|
We know that a subscription is a big commitment, and to help you get a better feel for the resources and the site you can buy individual Workbooks on a topic-by-topic basis for just £25 each. The workbooks are extensive Word documents designed to provide students with a fully-featured resource for learning about each topic.
Note: The workbooks contain gaps in certain areas, the content for which is provided with the matching slide-shows - only available with a subscription. An example of such a gap is missing answers to the questions for the students.View the Workbooks »
I learnt a huge amount from EBradbury which provided me with lots of resources which have enhanced my lessons.
Her knowledge and understanding of Criminal Law is superb and her expertise in cases related to all the topics on the Criminal Law course I guess would be unrivalled in the world of Law.
Emma Bradbury LLB(Hons), PGCE, MA has been a teacher for over 20 years at a non-selective sixth form college in Stockport. She works in a large department (teaching approximately 350 AS & A2 Law students per year). She is used to large classes with students of varying abilities. She has taught both AQA & OCR A-level Law and over the years has also taught A-level Government & Politics, Access to HE Law, Criminology & Politics, GCSE Law and ILEX.
Having written textbooks and study-resources using traditional media in the past, she now dedicates much of her time to creating and curating the EBradbury site.
Occasionally a different perspective is required to help students learn about a topic. For that reason EBradbury offers personal video-conferencing sessions either with members of staff or a class. These sessions can be used to guide tutors in teaching an area of the law, or for remote teaching sessions when used in the classroom.
Sessions can be tailored to your requirements, to discuss and/or arrange a session contact us.
