'Principles of Criminal Liability' Statutes

These cards should help you familiarise yourself with 5 statutes relating to statutory duty to act.

If you end up learning all these statutes you will have plenty of examples to choose from when doing your A2 Law exams.

I have added pictures to the fronts of the cards. Use these to trigger your memory when you've looked through the cards a few times. The pictures relate to the individual statutes and sections.

Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have!
Also, if you find any mistakes, or have any ideas as to how I can improve these revision cards, please let me know!

Thank you! :)
