    Try looking at the law before this case was decided. Then, look at how this case affected the law - did it radically change the law as it was by providing a new precedent? Did it codify various conflcting decisions? What cases have been decided quoting/following the arguements made in your original case? I'd also try to get some journal articles that discuss this case, and you MUST read the decision in full - if you want to go all out, read the decisions for all courts in which this case was argued in (I'm assuming it is a Court of Appeal/House of Lords case), therefore you can comment if the decision was upheld or overturned.

    You could also look at the legislation in this area - has legislation been made following the decision in this case? Did legislation exist in this area previously? If so, was it useful for this case?

    What is the case/area of law you are looking at. I maybe able to provide more help if it's a case or area which I know.

    It is the case of R (on the application of Dudson) v Sectretary of state for the Home Department. Its about the right to an oral heaing, and basically the court held he did not have a right. It also refers to article 6 (1) of the ECHR. Any help you can give me, or any extra reading you can recommed will be very much appreciated"! Thank you!!
