    Hey, police powers tend to come up every year and legal profession, sentencing, young offenders, appeals and pre trial procedures (bail, mode of trial etc) are also common in several past papers

    Doing unit 1 tomorrow, here's what my teacher thought was likely to come up:

    Parliamentary supremacy + limitations
    House of Commons PLM plus supremacy
    Advantages or disadvantages of Parliamentary Law Making (not both)
    Judicial control (Parliamentary came up last year)
    Tribunals (though I hope not, I hate them)
    A scenario question with either arbitration or mediation

    Not comprehensive, and quite possibly all wrong, but those are our predictions.

    PLM = Parliamentary Law Making, i.e. the lawmaking process (bill) in the House of Commons.

    As in the one year rule? Yes. Also how financial bills can only start there, the committee stage has ~16 MPs as opposed to the entire House of Lords, etc.

    Ok do you think they will ask us a specific question on a influence of parliament e.g. Media because I've only learned law commission and pressure groups

    Learn all three - political parties are technically on the spec but have never come up before. I think Law Commission will be the one to come up this time.

    I'm in Year 13 and resitting Unit 1 since I got an A in Unit 2 and a D in Unit 1 last year. I'm fine with Delegated Legislation + Civil Courts and ADR but Parliamentary Law Making is just not setting into my mind. I find this particular topic so boring it's off-putting for me.

    Neither does my class - they've never done a question on it before.

    If they do, talk about the main parties and the role of the Opposition. Perhaps link pressure groups in with lobbying.
