These are thorough and extremely well-organised Disputes & Ethics notes which will help you understand the flow of the course. D&E can be a lot to wrap your head around, but as a D&E tutor, I understand how to present the material in a straightforward manner. These notes contain plenty of detail to help you prepare for your midterm as well as for the essays on your final exam. No doubt you will carry much of this with you through your future careers. At the end of the notes, I've embedded links to the legislation you'll need to refer to for ease of access.
