This study analyzed the testing case law comprehension by applying Genera Based Approach. Case law reading comprehension of Pakistani law students have been investigated by Ahmad (2009) by recording the stakeholders’ perceptions using questionnaire as a tool. Through a different tool, i.e. test, the same problem is investigated in this research to check whether the findings correlate with the previous research. Taking insights from the review of literature and having consultations with the subject specialists, a test was designed. Data was analyzed quantitatively. The results revealed that the present research’s findings match with the results of the previous research carried out through a different tool. This confirms that the problem investigated from different angles reveals the same result: poor case law reading comprehension. This reassures that there is a strong justification to implement a legal English course in institutions of legal education in Pakistan.
