Hi everyone, i just wanted to explain a bit about myself and my notes. I finished alevels this year and re took law unit 2 whilst studying for my A2's alongside. i made essays for every topic in this unit and revised purely from them. I got an A in this unit and i got full marks in every essay i wrote ( i checked with my teacher). My sister also used them and achieved an A too. For now, ive only posted this essay as i i would like it if you read it first and if you prefer it for revision, request for the others (as posting them all now is too tiring lol). I personally think these essays are amazing and i would love to share them with everyone as i think theyll help!! 

Anyways!! happy revising and good luck :)
