Ah.. I see a fellow UClan First year law student
My lawyer skills tutor basically told us that we don't have to write it in an essay format as she'll be marking it (I.e- (a) The judges were x. The people involved were y). etc... So it doesn't have to be a strict "essay" format.
Also, it's reallllly complicated to understand if ur just reading the case. I suggest using Westlaw or LexisLibrary as it simplifies it considerably in my opinion.
The case was first heard in an employment tribunal, and the extract you've been given is the "employment appeals tribunal" case. Basically companies who have less than 20 employees are not allowed to have an employment tribunal, but it wasn't clear if this company had less than 20 as the fact that this company was part of a group of companies made the employers appeal the case on this grounds.
(Or at least this is what I understood)
I'm doing it right now =p so good luck to u as well
