    Easy!

    1. Briefly explain the concept of precedent and how it applies normally, with regards to the courts following precedent set by higher courts and their own.

    2. Explain how courts can avoid precedent through distinguishing.

    3. Mention the Practice Statement and what it does, its extent etc.

    4. Talk about the Young v Bristol Aeroplane regulations and also how the criminal division can depart from precedent in the event of a defendant's liberty.

    5. Mention as many facts as you can and use examples to back them up!

    There's so many points to mention that it's a matter of choosing the ones you want and explaining them in detail. You don't need to them all!
