In depth APPLICATION! This is what distinguished and differentiates it from AS law.

Making references to the scenario and linking it to the RELEVANT legal principles is essential.

And, don't waffle...it's very different from AS, so make sure you look at a lot of past papers.

Eg --> It is possible that the jury would find Bob liable for the homicide offence of Murder as his action has satisfied the mens' rea of malice aforethought implied; by having the intention to cause gbh. [R v Vickers] [R v Cunningham]

Not a great example, but you can see i didn't simply regurgetate the legal priniciples, but apply them as well. Do do this, as it is time-saving and efficient.

Yep, I'm doing a2 law now. I like it, hence the idea of doing it at degree level. What about yourself...?
