    It’s really hard to tell with this paper - they put law reform in the last 3 papers so it’s not that unlikely for it to come up twice in a row. Personally, I would go over every topic just to be safe

    I have got a feeling that judiciary will come up. Aswell as delegated legislation and law reform (probably the question on the law commission).

    I am not sure whether to do stat. It's difficult to know if what you are doing is right or wrong. I would rather come out of the exam knowing that I got some marks.

    Would anyone be able to explain the effect of the 1898 ban set down in the case of London street tramways v London county council in the topic of Judicial Precedent? I’m having trouble understanding what it actually did Did it prevent the supreme court from overruling it’s own previous decisions?

    London Street Tramways v London County Council was a case before the Practice Statement was issued. Basically, there were problems with the Supreme Court where they were bound by their own previous decisions, which consequently affected the flexibility of the Supreme Court. The Lord Chancellor, Lord Gardiner introduced the Practice Statement to make the Supreme Court more flexible. Basically, London Street Tramways v London County Council was the case in which the Supreme Court realized that there were situations where they shouldn't be bound by its own decisions.

    I think Precedent will come up, if so I believe it will ask you the hierarchy. Also please note that the Court of Appeal (Civil Division) and the Court of Appeal (Criminal Division) are two seperate things. Even though they can both use Young v Bristol Aeroplane, the Criminal Division has an extra power because someone's liberty is at stake. In the case of R v Taylor the Court of Appeal (Civil Division) need not follow its own previous decisions if it believes the decision has been 'misapplied or misinterpreted.'

    Furthermore, I would also look at Lord Lowry's guidelines in the case of C v DPP. It is very useful for the exam.
