Help with A2 Law (problem-situation questions)

Showing 1 to 3 of 3

I know that the A2 law papers are split into 2 sections,

one with the straightforward questions and the other one with a scenario-relate type questions.

I need help with the scenarios.  i have no idea how to structure my answer.

can someone please provide me with guidelines or how to structure my essay for these questions?

Hi, I think the scenario questions are actually easier than the 'straightforward' ones..

I first read the scenario and see which part of the law it is relating to for example, it may be murder...I would then begin by defining murder and any relvent Acts and cases...in the second paragraph i would go on to write about the scenario and if its asking who is criminally liable I would state so giving examples of cases to back up my answers and write unbiasedly, I would carry this on throughout the essay asessing the criminal liability of each character. towards the end I would state any reforms or problems within that particular area of the law and in the conclusion I would state who is crimianlly liable (if any are), why and what sentence they are likely to get...Hope that helps! :)

Just remmeber you need to always refer back to the scenario and use cases. You have to act like the judge!
