Hi Guys,

I was wondering if anybody has a rough idea of what questions may be likely to come up in tomorrow's exam??

I will be doing the following 3 sections:
Delegated Legislation
Statutory Interpretation
Criminal Courts and Lay People

I've heard that parliamentary controls may come up in the delegated legislation section... any ideas??

I reckon purposive approach or mischief rule will come up for statutory interpretation and a rule of language

For criminal courts and lay people possibly appeal courts and a question may ask about the training of magistrates

Can we use abbreviations in the exam, e.g. statutory instruments to 'SIs' and orders in council to 'OICs'?

I sometimes do, such as for supreme court (SC) and court of appeal (CoA) but i think try and avoid it if you are a fast writer and will have some time as it can look unprofessional and sometimes confuse the examiner

Thanks Yeah, I think I will do that. Will put it in brackets first. Although in the evaluation questions that look at spelling, structure etc. I will try to avoid doing it!

I think that qualification and selection of magistrates will come up in criminal courts and lay people

Judicial controls have been asked for the past few years so it is likely we will see Parliamentary controls. Last year saw reasons for delegated legislation as the question with 2 marks for AO3 so we are probably going to see advantages or disadvantages for delegated legislation.

I think that influences will come up for Parliamentary law as they can ask an outline or strengths and weaknesses question. Limitations is likely too but the parliamentary process less so as it has been on the last few years. ☺

Does anyone know what are the questions of statutory interpretation, judicial precedent and criminal court and lay people. As I forgot what are the questions and worrying about whether I have answered right or wrong way. Many Thanks

Statutory Interpreatation:
1.Intrinsic and Extrinsic aids
2. Mischief rule
3. Advantages and disadvantages of the mischief rule

Criminal Courts and Lay People:
1. Trial and appeal courts and the cases they hear
2. Qualification and training of magistrates
3. Disadvantages of lay people (juries and magistrates)

Didn't do precedent, sorry
