I got an A for A-Level law so I'm just going to post the way I wrote my answers for each specific area of this unit

Theft
Theft is defined under S1 of the Theft Act 1968, which states: 'A person is guilty of theft if s/he dishonestly appropriates property belonging belonging to another with the intention of permanently depriving the other of it'

The blue colour indicated the actus reus (guilty act) and the purple the mens rea (guilty mind)

Actus reus of theft
The actus reus of appropriating property belonging to another is found under sections 3,4,5 of the Theft Act 1968


Section 3: Appropriation
Appropriates is defined under s3(1), which states: 'Any assumption by a person of the rights of an owner'. Some examples are:


  • Selling
  • Destroying
  • Hiring out
  • Lending


These are cases with relevant information quote the names and ratios in your summer exam!!!!!

Pitham & Hehl - No need to physically take
Morris - Any right is enough as long as it is against the owners wishes
Lawrence, Gomez -Appropriation can be from consent by deception as to assume the rights of an owner
Hinks -Appropriation can be proved even when the property is obtained through a gift

​Section 4: Property
Property is stated under s4(1) of the Theft Act 1968 which states property 'Includes money and all other property, real or personal, including things in action and other intangible property'
