OCR AS LAW - English Legal SystemWatch
I got told judges will not come up. But lets be fair sentencing one of the bigger topics didn't come up last year so who knows what they could get rid of! I hope for Legal personal, magistrates, judges and police powers
Judges came up last year but my teacher reckons its coming up again
the Civil Court Structure is due to come up (Woolf reforms)
i'm praying for Sentencing,Magistrates, Mode of trial and Powers to stop and search ( i'd cry if they came up )
She also said that it is likely that ADR, bail and criminal courts will come up, as they're due and are rotated round. Hope that helps!
My teacher said that it'll probably be a pretty easy paper this year because apparently last year's one was a bloodbath, so he's saying it'll be ADR, stop and search, barristers, sentencing, law reform the judiciary and civil courts
That paper was really nice - I think I may have muddled up S24 powers of arrest and the civil use of juries but beyond that it was great. The sentencing question and Q7 scenario was really nice. The Q2 High Court question needed a good knowledge of civil appeals. Bail was nice part a but a nastier part b and unexpected.
Why did u use arrest for Ngl I hated the paper I like police powers and setencing was average and so was the juries but the Q2 was horrific
