I want to do something related to law.
The topic I'm currently mulling over is 'the enduring impact of terrorism on human rights in Britain since 9/11'.
I'm thinking I could then talk about the significance of anti-terrorism legislation for 'human rights', or how terrorism has affected political attitudes or rhetoric in regards to human rights?
But I feel like there would be a risk of it being either a) too broad, or b) too specific, i.e. not enough to talk about.
What do people think?

But also, if I wasn't to do that topic at all,
What would be some ideas of a law related extended project topic?

Cheers.

Hmmm...that does sound more like Politics than Law (although the two are related). I'd try and pick a topical issue - I started mine in September last year so I based it loosely around Debbie Purdy. :awesome: I broadened it to look at the implications of the law on medicine (assisted suicide, (lack of legal) duty to rescue others in emergencies, that kind of thing). I know someone else did something similar, there was another on "human rights" and a third on the age of criminal responsibility.

If you've got any more questions, feel free to ask.

is this the extended essay cos ill tell you now its a b*tch. im doing roman army effectiveness and im having to cut it down from being 8200 words to the required 5000. i think if i were you i would aim about something specific rather than broad. you can always pack more stuff in via other peoples views and sources but taking stuff out is a hell of a job. easier to add than take away without changing your structure too much.

I did mine on 'The Use of Computing for the Advancement of Genomics' - although you might think this is completely unrelated, there are literally hundreds of laws in relation to this - everything from data processing to ethical research etc. Not to mention how the future of personalised genomics is going to need to be regulated.

You're totally right. My topic is too broad.
I suppose I forget that 5000 words isn't actually all that much.
I do kind of want to do something a bit political, but primarily law obviously.
I'm trying to look at the news and figure out if there is something I can form a topic on. Immigration law would be very interesting , but I do have to be careful about doing it on a topic which requires detailed knowledge of the law that I don't have!
Argh! So tough.

What knowledge, if any, do you have?

You don't get marks for originality (:p:) so as long as you're not doing anything like others at your centre, I'd be inclined to look at an area from the A Level Law syllabus and discuss whether there's a need for reform. That's essentially what most of them boil down to, and it means that you should be able to tell "what the law is" by referring to a decent (and up-to-date!) textbook. The most obvious area is Criminal since that seems to receive the most media attention, but Human Rights should be OK.

Here - the only thing I've found so far (since The Times isn't available any more :hmmm:). That would allow you to look at the law on rape/consent and the age of criminal responsibility. You could even broaden it a little more if necessary and look at whether the "procedure" of rape trials is satisfactory. There have been several cases recently of men falsely accused of rape whose reputations have been damaged - I think there were anonymity proposals within the last few months too, but I'm not sure what happened to them. :erm:

Maybe something like a short film project, documentary of some sort. You could do a documentary/project about how the new titution fees affect people ambitions to go to University/higher education. Its a very conversational topic but there are loads of materials for this topic.

Good luck.

This thread's about EPQ ideas for someone interested in law. Are you looking for suggestions like those offered by Vibenation, or something on "media law"?

If it's the latter, I haven't covered the area in ages, but there's a new Defamation Bill which might be worth looking into. You can find a summary (which probably has more detail than you need!) here.

Does anyone have any idea on how I can relate my EPQ into art. I'm thinking of doing a painting which I then only have to write 1000 words.
Thanks in advance.

I am doing my EPQ on the argument as to wether laws from other specific countries should be enforced in the UK too..
Does that sound good? I need help.. I'm only in year 12, and this is the first time I'm ever doing something like this.

Hi, I am doing the EPQ in AS, and wish to pursue law as a career. However am conflicted between studying health law or environmental law :confused: which I have sought an interest in.Could you please give me ideas on:- what type of question to choose for my EPQ title based on environmental and health law.- what area to research in the field of law (which is common and easy to get a job in) Thanks for any feedback
