About the lesson
It varies from student to student. But generally my tutorials are more interactive and discussion based. Since in professional courses such as Bar Training Course, (BTC) and Bar Professional Training Course, (BPTC) the students are expected to answer the questions involving complex factual and legal structures, therefore, my approach of teaching is based on analytical and systematic reasoning. The exam techniques are extremely instrumental, when it comes to solving Single Best Answers(SBA), unique in its form and breed as compared to Multiple Choice Question(MCQ). With my vast experience I have developed various techniques and strategies to approach these rather difficult questions. My slogan is Legal Education with difference.. since I have a different approach, different methods, different strategies and different mechanism to comprehensively deal with these professional exams.

I have been practicing law for the last couple of years. Before putting myself into legal practice I undertook series of core professional courses, primarily the Bar Professional Training Course. My insatiable thirst for legal knowledge and learning didn’t stop me for getting excellence in the field of law. To that end in mind I felt honoured to get membership in The Honourable Society of the Lincoln’s Inn located in the legal heart of London at an arms length from the Royal Court of Justice. This is indeed one of the esteemed and prestigious Inn’s of Court. After successfully completing the BPTC, I was called to the Bar.
I have been teaching the law students and primarily the students who are doing the Bar course, BTC, the Bar Training Course or BPTC, the Bar Professional Training Course. I have more than two years experience of teaching Civil & Criminal Litigation and Evidence and Professional Ethics. I have guided, taught and helped almost 50 students in these two years and the feedback and results are extremely very satisfying and excellent. All my students, they are from different providers, passed their exams with very good grades in their first attempt in the centralised exams of Civil Litigation and Criminal Litigation conducted and regulated by the Bar Standard Board.
Advocacy and teaching have always been my passion throughout my professional career. I have been teaching in law courses in couple of institutions as a visiting faculty one lecture in a week. I think teaching online would be very good for me because I can manage my time quite easily and would be more accessible as compared to teaching in a law college. I can teach Law of torts, criminal law, Trust and Equity and Land Law. Further, I can be reached through Zoom meeting and Skype for online classes and tutorials of Civil Litigation and Criminal Litigation for students who are doing BTT, BTC and BPTC.
Perfect! I took mock sessions for Criminal Litigation with Muhammad. He has been very knowledgeable in the subject and it is easy to follow. He identifies and clarifies some common misconceptions and gave very helpful examples. I am definitely more confident in sitting the paper now. Thank you! :)
Perfect! Though I've only focused on BPTC content sessions instead of mock/exam tactics, I thoroughly appreciated and enjoyed Muhammad's way of teaching! I also greatly appreciated that Muhammad accepted my request for tutoring promptly and despite the short notice.
Muhammad was able to break down the theories and sections of Civil Litigation in a more understandable format - he also gives real-life examples alongside his teachings, which made it easier for me to understand better how different sections of content can relate to each other.
Overall, he is a dedicated and engaging tutor!
Perfect! Muhammed has been super helpful and insightful. The level of detail of discussion is great. His method of teaching to ensure retention of information is one of a kind. He really does go above and beyond to ensure that you understand the topic and concepts involved. The examples he gives are unique and ones you will definitely remember!
Perfect! I was VERY LUCKY to have Muhammad as a tutor, although I contacted him on short notice, he did his best to help me and make sure I could improve. I could not have asked for a better tutor.
Muhammad took the time to teach me everything I needed to know for the exam and had the patience to answer all of my silly questions. When I didn't understand a concept, he was willing to explain (again and again).
On a personal level, he was very supportive and tried to give me as much confidence as he could.
Exams are so stressful, but now I am hoping to be able to study criminal litigation with him!
If you need support, do not hesitate to reach him !!
Perfect! Muhammad is an excellent tutor that cares immensely about the success of his students, beyond anything else. He is very methodical and is able to break down topics so well to ensure that one has a complete understanding of what is taught. He is patient and understanding in his teaching approach. I would highly recommend him for Civil and Criminal litigation. In the 2 weeks that I have been studying with him, I have gotten so much insight into a lot of topics and my confidence level to approach exams has increased.
My only regret is that I didn't meet Muhammad earlier. I am so grateful to him for his assistance and his genuine desire to help me succeed.
Perfect! Muhammed is very nice and methodical. He takes his time to explain things to you and checks your understanding. He always acts in the best interest of his students and will always do his best to ensure that you are well prepared to sit the exam. I am very grateful for all of his help. I highly recommend using him for tutoring services and the earlier you start the better.
Perfect! I have enjoyed my tutoring sessions with Muhammad. He thoroughly explains every topic. He also helps you learn how to read the exam questions properly. He encourages independent learning that allows you to clarify your own understanding and whilst he helps you refine that knowledge as well. He is patient and creates a comfortable environment to learn. Good service.
Perfect! I like how he gets into the little details that can easily be missed when actually sitting an exam or that an examiner will pay close attention to when writing a question. He has a method where he goes through the topic, explains it and gives examples so that you can remember and understand the topics. In addition, as it relates to time he is very flexible and understanding especially seeing that i am in a totally different time zone. I would definitely recommend his services!!!
Perfect! Very professional and helpful tutor, encouraging, warm and friendly in his lesson delivery/approach. Recommended!
Perfect! Muhammad is a great tutor for both Criminal and Civil Litigation. He is extremely knowledgeable and gives realistic examples to help understand topics. I am more confident in my ability to do well on the BSB centralized assessments because of him. I look forward to having even more sessions with him.
Excellent! Great teacher

Muhammad has been very very helpful!! I would definitely recommend him if you are struggling with MCQ questions and content! His mock bundles have been super useful and he explains things easily to help you understand them better. If you need a bar tutor, Muhammad should be your first pick!
Extremely knowledgeable provides useful and effective examples to explain how CPR works and is methodical in his approach. Has a solid foundation in the sorts of questions that might come up, and is able to guide your revision, so you don't waste time on information that is unlikely to come up.
Very good with students, he takes full responsibility of teaching and making sure students understand. Muhammad repeats the topics as many times as the students needs and has a very good way of teaching both BSB exams. He explains the reasoning behind the relevant CPR or CrimPR and will go through past papers with you explaining why answers are correct or incorrect.
He is always looking after his students by making sure he makes time for them and schedules them based on students’ availability.
His classes are enjoyable, he’s funny and flexible.
I recommend 100%! The best!
Muhammad is very knowledgeable , patient and break downs topics into understandable portions going through the CPR step by step . Very useful examples to help understanding and responsive . Would recommend
I studied civil and crime with Muhammad and I cannot thank him enough. His through and has helped me so much with my knowledge retention. The topics I struggled with, he took the time to find a revision method that works for me. I highly recommend him, he has mastered teaching the course to students.
I met Muhammed only 2 weeks ago getting around 50% in my mocks. After 9 sessions today I have achieved a score of 80%!
He is a very friendly tutor and is very accommodating, giving extra attention to the areas which you struggle in. He has given me my confidence back since leaving the BPTC teaching during COVID, with exams delayed. He is extremely knowledgeable and makes sure to research the answer to any question you have, I trusted him fully with revision.
I would recommend him to anybody completing the BPTC/BPC and I look forwards to him helping me with my Civil Litigation exam next year!
Muhammad has helped me go from failing/being on a borderline pass in civil law, to exceeding my own expectations and getting around 80%. He has helped to boost my confidence in a difficult subject and demonstrated how to apply the law in real life scenarios (something my uni failed to do). I would recommend everyone choose him for BTC exam prep, as he explains things patiently and clearly, and he has an amazing knowledge base :)
Muhammad takes time with his students and his approach to answering questions is extremely insightful. I would highly recommend him if you are seeking additional help!
Muhammad has been of immense help to me on my Bar journey. I was so behind on civil litigation and found him about a month to the exam. During that period, he guided me with in-depth study and practice questions and I ended up passing the exam despite having other papers to study for in that short period. He is very patient and gives his all to ensuring that his students succeed. I will definitely recommend him.
Muhammad has been very helpful and friendly. He provides his students with revision packs that include numerous MCQs and helps his students work through them. He explains the content through these questions and helps you with your exam technique. If you are in need of 1-2-1 help on content or exam technique, Muhammad is the tutor for you!
Muhammad is a greatly supportive tutor, who will take the time to explain the Criminal Litigation topics with you until you fully understand each one. The techniques used in going through MCQ’s and SBA’s has also allowed me to increase my reasoning skills; and I am now able to identify red herrings in the questions. My confidence in my own knowledge has increased, and I feel much better about retaking the CEB exam. Muhammad is also very flexible with the timing of sessions which is perfect when you work alongside your studies. I look forward to finishing Criminal Litigation and continuing with him for Civil Litigation.
Muhammad's greatest asset is his ability to break down complex ideas into simple, understandable components - a huge blessing in the BPTC course where you are expected to understand and commit to memory several tricky concepts. In 4 hours, we managed to thoroughly cover a difficult Criminal Litigation subject (hearsay) I had previously spent close to 10 hours revising independently without much success. He is incredibly patient and allows you to ask him as many questions as you want in order to clarify a topic. In addition, his emphasis on making you explain how you reasoned your way to a correct answer and eliminated incorrect options when doing past paper questions means he is able to catch you if you have a faulty grasp on any legal concepts, and quickly correct you. Overall, he is an excellent tutor who has given me much more confidence in the subject. I strongly recommend him.
Muhammad is very professional and so knowledgeable. Every lesson is so helpful and confidence boosting. Knowledge growing
Muhammad is dedicated to his students and teaches to his best abilities. He explains complex matters into simpler ones. I will definitely recommend him to others
I would highly recommend Muhammed. He is very skilled and knowledgable.
Muhammad is an excellent teacher. He is very knowledgeable. He teaches everything with examples. Makes difficult topics like civil litigation and procedures easy . He taught me criminal litigation quite well . He goes out of his way to teach his students. One thing that I have found very extraordinary is that he is very inspiring and he tells you that you can do it which you can if you follow his guidance!
Mr. Shazad is an outstanding tutor. His way of teaching is very effective and knowledge of the law is brilliant. He tutored me with Civil Law and made it much easier for me to understand and prepare me for the exam.
He would also have no problem going into his own time in order to help me understand the topic. Extremely helpful!
Muhammad is an excellent tutor for Civil Litigation and Criminal Litigation. After my first tutorial with him, I realised I should have joined him earlier.. since he is not only an extraordinary in teaching skills but also an exceedingly amazing motivational guide... I have found his method of teaching matchless especially when it comes to answering complex questions in the form of MCQ’s and SBA’s... if you are really worried about BPTC, there is no other tutor but Muhammad... it’s better if you start early with him... so that you can cover your course in advance of exams... Highly recommended.. You would never regret choosing Muhammad as your tutor.. Colette
I started tutoring with Muhammad in the few weeks before my exams. Although I thought I should have started sooner he really got me up to scratch within that time. We were mainly working on practice questions given the short time. He was great at fine tuning my understanding of how to answer the questions and how to approach different types of question. He was also good at supplementing my knowledge when I had missed something from my learning and was very clear and patient with explanations. He has a very good knowledge of both civil and criminal law. He also vastly improved my exam technique for my ethics exam which prior to his teaching I was really struggling in. I would definitely recommend !
Muhammad is an excellent civil litigation tutor. The scenarios he give helps you understand the area he is explaining and will never soon forget. If you are struggling with Civil Litigation of the BPTC I recommend him highly. In the 5 sessions we have had he has certainly boost my confidence. He is responsive and understanding. I am seeing Civil Litigation through different lens. Give Muhammad a try you wouldn't regret it.
Muhammad Shahzad helped me during my civil litigation exam. It was my final attempt at it. If it wasn’t for him I don’t know how I would have got through it. Shahzad spent time explaining each topic to me. We would go through MCQs and he would test him as to why I thought my answer was right and where I got it wrong he would explain to me. I have never met anyone who is so sincere and passionate about helping others. He takes time out and helps you and will not stop until you have understood it. No matter what time of the day it was I could always rely on him to help me. I owe a lot to Shahzad as everything was riding on my final exam. I would highly recommend him for civil litigation. His knowledge, wisdom and care is outstanding and I guarantee you he will make you pass.
I can not resist appreciating the best tutor of Civil and Criminal Litigation in BPTC and All LLB (Hons) modules. Barrister Muhammad Shahzad has eye to detail and explain the concepts with practical examples.
I still remember the way he explained me the concept of Disclosure in Civil litigation which I dealt with in exam perfectly.
Definitely recommend him!!
Mr shezad is an excellent teacher. He possesses all the relevant knowledge of the BPTC and knows all the practicalities when it comes to the law. Mr shehzad uses extensive techniques when it comes to solving BPTC questions, making it easy to analyse and evaluate the question. I would highly recommend Mr shehzad to anyone who is struggling with the BPTC.
