Mooting Help - Tort. watch

    • Thread Starter


    I am a second year law student and I am taking part in my first second year moot on Wednesday. My skeleton argument is due tomorrow morning at 10am.

    I was wondering if anyone could point me to better authorities which look at the Alcock control mechanisms, specifically, the one relating to close ties of love and affection.

    I am currently using Alcock, Taylor and McLoughlin to show how a close tie of love and affection between a spouse and their partner can be rebutted. I am also using Hinz to contrast the different relationships in the moot problem and the case, to show that there was in fact no close tie of love and affection.

    The individual in the case was in the early stages of divorce and they had had long-standing marital issues for a while. Are there any other cases that I can use to show that the situation in the moot problem does not amount to a close tie of love and affection?
