    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

    tbh i don't want judges to come up, I am re-siting and i had to teach re teach myself everything.
    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 )

    I have revised sentencing, police powers, magistrates, ADR, legal profession, pre-trial and a little of judiciary! I'm really worried that the questions I haven't done will come up (juries, criminal appeals, civil cases, bail etc) but I guess we'll find out tomorrow 😂 Good luck everyone!!

    I was told by my teacher that these topics come up (usually) every year: legal profession, lay people, judges, police powers and sentencing.
    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!

    Bail was on last year, so unlikely to come up again the year after

    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

    If that was right I would be so happy.

    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.

    S117 PACE - reasonable force.
