    Can anyone give me any tips on how to approach this question, I need to take a socio-legal approach (aka how the law is/is not responding to changes in society i.e rising cohabitation rates) but it is confusing me how to do so without deviating from it being a legal essay.
    "In the absence of unlikely legislative reform towards a statutory , common law and the constructive trust is the only protection afforded to cohabiting couples, however they have been routinely criticised."
    Critically analyse the above.
    I'm not sure if I am going off tangent by talking about the failed cohabitation bill and I know basic criticisms of the constructive trust but I am unsure as to how to fit it into a socio legal approach. It is mainly the case law that is confusing me in this approach.
    I tend to over-complicate things so any response is appreciated!
    Many thanks
