    Hi. I'm just practicing some past exam papers for public law and I've just revised police powers etc. I'm really stumped on one question and can't find any journal articles relating to it.

    "Police powers for arrest and search and seizure are now far too wide. The powers encroach on civil liberties in a manner far beyond anything that can be justified as necessary for the prevention of crime."

    Most of this part of the course is obviously governed by statute in the form of PACE. How can I write a good essay without it being overly boring and technical with too many references to PACE? I haven't been able to locate any decent resources with opinions about PACE or common law powers of arrest and seizure on Westlaw (been searching for a long time).

    Any help would be appreciated.

    That would be a massive help - are you undergrad too?
