Basically for my exam I was told I will have to interpret a statutory extract,but I wasnt told exactly how I am meant to do this.

The statute is chapter 19 of the criminal appeal act 1968 .

I think it may give you a small problem question, and by using the Act, see what the legal response is.

Ask your uni?

No its multiple choice . We were told in that point of that section was to reward preparation. also in the practice paper some of the questions asked included what some words meant .

I see.

So in that Act, look for the 'Interpretation' sub section.

They will have the definitions for the words used in the Act.

What other things did they say?

The annotation helps in the statutory interpretation.

I would at least read them over.

But memorise the definitions in the Interpretation section for sure.

We are allowed to take our annotations in but I am just not sure about what I am doing

You can't take annotated copies of the statute. You can only annotate those three cases.

For sure, learn the Westlaw annotations for the given sections of the Act, so 1,2,3, 3A, 7.

See if there any major cases that link to those sections.

Learn them.

Please read the attached statutory extract and prepare material for answering questions on the meaning, interpretation and application of this material.

definitely look at s22 of the magistrates courts act 1980

look for definitions of
scheduled offence
the value involved.

Yes I have looked at definitions. Also on west law there are annotations on conditions for example in S.3(1) where it says convicted of an offence, if the offence of which the defendant has been convicted does not exist,this section cannot be used to substitute a verdict of guilty on another offence;see r v abdul 2012. Is this important?
Also is this what you meant when you said learn the cases?
