    Look carefully at the meaning of a duty of care, or so scope is defined.

    So basically; talk about Donoghue v Stevenson and Lord Atkin's neighbour principle
    Then the new test which replaced it (Caparo v Dickman's 3 part test)
    Is the damage reasonably foreseeable?
    Is there sufficient proximity between the parties?
    Is it fair, just and reasonable to impose the duty
    ...in conclusion

    Don't forget to apply if it's a scenario question

    Unless it's a situation with no real analogy in existing case law (as in The Nicholas H/ Watson v British Boxing Board) you can't just apply the three limbed test straight out. You missed the focus of the case on 'incrementalism'.

    OP, are you looking for guidance on SAAMCO? You need to be more clear.
