    I'm panicking! EU law goes straight in one ear and out the other for me no matter how much I revise it and i know that's the most likely to come up. My teacher said there's a good chance there'll be a question on rules of language or statutory presumptions which will be okay..really hoping it won't be a combination of EU law and Law reform though as i know neither!

    Good luck for tomorrow everyone!
    what do you mean rules of language? :O

    Okay so here goes, I predict that Delegated Legislation will come up.
    I've beening looking at past papers and I believe that tomorrows paper will have the following layout:
    (a) Act of Parliament
    (b) Typical question like which is the most suitable type or body (something along those lines)
    (c) i- Three types
    ii- Advantages and Disadvantages
    But keep in mind that this is based on my own research.
    Goodluck peoples.

    i hope that DL will come up, and this will be the layout, just pleaseeeee !

    Consolidation:
    -There are lots of different bits to laws and changes are made to laws everywhere which when put together makes up one big law.
    E.g. law on sentencing under 17 year olds has been changed 10 times but for a judge to understand the final point on it he has to look at the previous laws - consolidation means that all these similar laws are put together.

    Codification:
    -All laws on similar things are brought together into one source.
    E.g. rape, murder, assault are all known as criminal law.

    Codification of the law

    The Commission believes that the law would be more accessible to the citizen, and easier for the courts to understand and apply, if it were presented as a series of statutory codes. As a preliminary step, to prepare the ground, we are working on a number of projects that aim to simplify aspects of the criminal law.

    In a nutshell, put all of criminal law in one document.

    Consolidation of Statutes

    Consolidation brings together under one Act all the existing statutory provisions previously located in several different Acts. The law itself remains unchanged, but those who use it can now find it all in one place.

    Different provisions from different acts are regrouped into one Act.

    Taken from the Law Commission website too, so it's got to be right

    The examiner like to use all four topics in a year, so I would say no. I hope not anyway, or if it does it hopefully comes up with Delegated. It's never come up twice, it's come up every January only.

    Thank you guys! This finally makes sense now, before I struggled to see the difference between the two

    You scared me there for a minute. That's why I don't think Statutory Interpretation will come up in the exam tomorrow.

    what do you think will come up?
    Acts of Parliament and probably the three types of DL with advantages/disadvantages? As for question B, I have a feeling it might be on judicial review or a specific statutory instrument.
