    Whilst I have a general knowledge of employment case names, I am more familiar with the principles and tests developed by the courts as a pose to the names of some of the cases themselves. How much am I likely to be penalised for not naming cases but describing the principles and applying those to any given facts?.

    As a qualified lawyer you obviously have access to various resources and databases and can take your potential facts along with you to analyse whether a case has good prospects of success, so how important is your memory of all of the case names and will an exam marker take a similar approach to marking?.
