    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
    Thank you very much

    Just wondering
    for gross negligence manslaughter do you prove

    -duty of care
    -breach of duty
    -gross neligence
    -risk of death

    for the actual breach do you talk about how the act has resulted in death through causation? as it has caused the death or do you talk about that with risk of death?

    Can you explain to me how you would answer the question question on first scenario, I've learned all the content but can't get my head round the scenarios.
    This without a doubt is a tricky question...

    Basically:
    Alice - Beth = Assault 'narrowly missed Beth' - wouldn't be guilty of an offence on the basis she hasn't formed the AR of assault 'to cause v to apprehend immediate unlawful personal violence' so no offence would be committed against Beth.
    Alice- Chris = Transferred malice (do this when applying the MR) S.47 abh could be both an assault or battery but i'd argue an assault (it would be easier). Vs own act could also be made relevant.
    Alice-Dave = s.20 gbh/s.18 its likely to be s.18 on the basis she intended to throw the vase at Beth but it missed her. (Thin skull rule can also be took into acc as can age)
    Defences: Insanity and automatism.

    REMEMBER TO DEFINE ABH AND GBH

    Bit of a lengthy question for 25 marks ;/

    Check the other thread, I made a post on GNM structure. Also do yourself a favour and read examiner's reports. It's often the difference between a sound and a clear response.

    Do theft first.

    Robbery AR:
    Force used (Dawson James, B&R, Clouden, Bentham)
    Immediately before or at time of theft (Hale)

    MR:
    Force used in order to steal (Vinall, Lockley)
