A2 law, these are the topics which we have learnt..

Non fatals- assault, battery, s47, s20 and s18
Defences- insanity, automatism, intoxication, self defence and consent

Murder- actus reus and mens rea, omissions, transferred malice maybe (depending on scenario), causation.. factual and legal, intervening acts...
voluntary manslaughter- includes provocation and diminished responsibility
involuntary manslaughter and gross negligence + subjective recklessness

criticisms and reforms.. of non fatals, defences, murder? ( I think), voluntary manslaughter, prov and diminished responsibility!

there's no criticisms for involuntary manslaughter (I don't think)? :confused:

please feel free to comment or add stuff which I've missed out!

before I forget.. Can we have a revision session on here, testing each other with these topics?

If they were 3 elements which are;

1) a defect of reason- shows the case of "Clarke"
2) caused as a result of the disease of the mind- "Kemp" "Sullivan", "Hennessy" "Burgess" and "Quick"

3) the Defendant doesn't know the nature and quality of his act or whether it's wrong. (hmm, always get :confused: here :p:)
this has 2 points which refers to the physical character of the act

1)whether the defendant was impaired or unimpaired unconsciousness? (right, that doesn't even sound right)!

2) whether the defendant was conscious, but due to his mental state, didn't realise that what he was doing was wrong- case of Windle and Johnson!

there you go! not in essay form, my bad :p:

so im hoping most of what I've written is right.. plz correct if wrong! I have a question for you.. what is the difference between insane automatism and non insane automatism? not too easy for you (I hope) lol jkin :p:

Provocation and Diminished Responsobility are your MURDER ONLY DEFENCES these are also known as Voluntary Manslaughter

Your General offences are Insanity, Automatism, Consent, Intoxiaction, and Self Defence - these will usually be linked with your Non Fatal Offences
