    I personally dont mind Unlawful Act Manslaughter...i hate gross negligence though!

    (Original post by mel0n)
    I kinda got confused after your first paragraph.
    Are you asking about whether you'd still have to discuss the unlawful offence even if you've had to discuss it in a previous question??
    haha i thought it might be a little confusing, but never mind i think Swimmer's answered the Q.

    LG1, i think the unlaful act can only be assault or battery. Im not sure if u have to discuss it, i dnt think you do, coz its a different offence, and i never got told to discuss.
    The unlawful act could be something like arson/kidnapping too and on the mark schemes it says you don't need to actually know the AR and MR of them as they're not part of the syllabus. However, we've been told that even if it is something like arson (as it has been in the past) you could still class it as an assault as the fire caused the victim to apprehend immediate violence, and if it is something like kidnapping (which has also come up before) you could reduce it and class it as a battery as the defendant obviously had to apply unlawful force to get hold of the person. :ninja:

    Yes exactly right arson could be classed as assault, and kidnappyg battery, so its still comes down to those 2.

    to apply the situation? its not as hard as you make it sound guys!

    for example, in a murder question when you're talking about the mens rea you would say malice aforethought express or implied then for example "i believe bob had implied malice aforethought as to the murder of millie because he only stabbed her once"

    if you think if of your questions in chunks...and then you can either apply at the end of the chunk, or within the chunk

    i hope this helps like.
