    Anyone know a good website with some problem questions? Would he really helpful if someone's got some notes already word processed and wouldn't mind posting them up. I just want to know I've got all the grounds covered.

    Thanks very much.

    Not sure about too many sites but sixthformlaw is good for cases.

    As a guide, and the minimum I think you should do to get a decent grade is, know the definitions of:

    Common Assault - The D makes the V apprehend immediate personal violence - Smith 1983
    Battery - The D applies physical force to the D and any touching will do - Collins v. Wilcock
    ABH (s47 OAPA 1861) - Any hurt or injury calculated to interfere with the health and comfort of the victim and more than transient and trifiling - Donovan
    GBH s20 OAPA 1861 - Smith 1960 - Really serious harm. GBH Wounding - Eisenhower - Wounding - A wound is a break in the continuity of the whole skin
    GBH with intent s18 OAPA 1861 - You intend to cause serious harm (Smith/Saunders)

    The mens rea for ABH and GBH is to intend or be reckless of 'some harm' (Mowatt / Savage & Parmenter)

    Common assault and battery are common law offences although their existence is recognised in s39 of the Criminal Justice Act (Can't remember what year!) Hope that helps - let me know if you want more help, its revision for me for the exam on 17th June

    Shazada, thanks for the reply. I think I've got those areas covered.


    The only thing I noticed was your MR for ABH which should be intention/subjective recklessness as to causing the victim to apprehend immediate physical violence (the same as assault).


    Don't suppose you have any problem questions knocking about?
