    Scenario 2 yes! I got stuck on the dog bit obviously its gbh but it was the dog that caused the wound... not Kris (apparently this was an omission - got to admit I would have never put this in the exam!) Would have had to do scenario 1..

    When they is an omission do i have to prove causation? I get confused when I have to prove causation for Non-fatal offences

    No! You don't really have to talk about causation at A2 unless there is an intervening act... the dog isn't an intervening act, its basically the cause of the injury.

    Alice -> Chris - ABH - causation issue of victims own act + transferred malice
    Alice -> Dave - GBH + transferred malice - id argue s.18 as she she a vase at Beth thus she has intent to cause serious harm

    Possible defence of Insanity

    When talking about causation are you going to mention factual and legal? How would you fit it in?

    But for Alices action chris would not have ... (Pagett)

    It was reasonably forseeable for Chris to try and move out fo the way (Roberts)

    Id mention it after establishing the AR

    Tuck it in right between the AR and MR.

    To be the cause in fact, V must not have suffered harm but for D's conduct (White/Pagett). But for X hitting Y, Y would not have died, establishing X as the factual cause.

    To be the cause in law, D must be the operative and substantial cause (case)
    This may be in question as the intervening act of _____ may break the chain of causation (case). For the chain the be broken ______. And apply

    Hi! Please can someone help me with these last minute questions.

    This may sound stupid but firstly, when talking about 'voluntary or involantary manslaughter' Do we talk about this without talking about murder? I'm confused to whether or not 'loss of control' and 'diminished responsibility' are defences to be talked about with murder or not???

    Next: For both ABH and GBH pyschiatric injury can satsify them. But one of them is 'serious pychiatric injury'. What are some examples of 'serious' ones?

    Thank you!!!

    for GBH they may say something like severe depression rather than just depression.

    For murder it can be moved to Voluntary Manslaughter with DIMINISHED RESPONSIBILITY and LOSS of CONTROL - DR and LOC can only be used for murder

    Yes, involuntary manslaughter is not part of murder. In order to prove invol manslaughter you go the 3 part test for either and or both unlawful act and gross negligence. A general defence may also apply
