In 2012 the author gave a series of conference presentations on how to encourage law students to engage with their feedback. The author devised an Assessment and Feedback Guide, with the following aims: to explain the general learning outcomes for law as identified in the QAA Benchmark Statement; to provide examples of when these learning outcomes are demonstrated; to explain how these outcomes are assessed; to explain what feedback is and the importance of using it to feed-forward to improve performance; and to provide examples of fictitious student work, including the types of feedback comments that tutors might provide. In late 2020 the author adapted the Guide to take account of the 2019 Law Benchmark statement. The Guide was circulated to law students at the university of Greenwich. This presentation refers to some of the research on feedback and reports on the efficacy of the Guide in encouraging students to use their feedback.
