What criticisms/reforms should I talk about in these questions?
I want to write something that can easily get to the point and can be written quite quickly in a few sentences since I have a problem with the time limit...

(Please specify which, A or B)

(A) or (NFO) Critically evaluate the current law on non-fatal offences, and suggest any reforms that you consider may improve the law.

(B) or (Murder) Despite some recent reforms, there are still criticisms to be made of the current law on murder and voluntary manslaughter. Consider relevant criticisms of that law, and suggest any reforms that may be appropriate.

I wasn't taught any of them last year (AS) and only started learning how to answer these questions last week and my teachers are expecting a full answer for murder criticisms by this Thursday...

Possible topics I've got down:
Outdated language 'malice aforethought' etc
GBH (if then died) can be enough to be called murder
Mercy killing is still 2nd degree killing
Sentencing between 1st and 2nd degree
'Definition' of loss of control is too broad yet too narrow
Triggers

I'm not sure if thats enough but I just don't know how to put them into a straightforward answer since they all seem really longwinded... but thanks!!

I'm actually now in my 3rd year of uni for Law so I can't exactly pinpoint every single aspect. However, you're on the right track. I can send you some guideline by tuesday. But please do remind in the meantime. I'm sorry I can't be more earlier than this as I've got a lot of work to do. And no worries.

Just sent you some notes on the law for the first question. As far as the structure of the question is concerned, its pretty simple.

Firstly talk about the current law and then CRITICALLY explain the flaws with it. Include case law to prove your point. This should be in your main body of the essay. Also, this would then lead you to conclusion.

Hope this helped. I'm sorry if it wasn't detailed enough.
