    No need to be a patronising...
    There's always a need to be patronising =]

    Of course, I know what I'm talking about - I was always one to do the least possible work.

    As far as i know, you are not required to have any prior knowledge of Law before starting your course...However, if you do want to read something, read about English legal system: the common law, structure of the courts and etc. It should give you a good foundation for everything else...

    Reading cases before university is probably not the best idea...you won't understand them as such and it might even put you off...Although I do enjoy reading through a criminal law case once in a while, as it is actually quite interesting

    Well sometimes disturbing would be a better word. We are learning about consent at the moment and a couple of cases we looked at were....well let's just say there are some strange people out there.

    Yeah, I know we're not required to, but it genuinely interests me. I'll head to the library tomorrow after school and see what they've got. I'll probably take a brief look at Donoghue vs. Stevenson, as well.

    I went to an appeal against a rape conviction at the High Court earlier this year. It was the most hilarious thing that I've ever seen. I loved every minute of it.

    Oh no the cases we had where to do with ABH and GBH. One case was about sado-masochistic homosexuals and the other about a woman wanting her husband to brand his initials on her buttocks. Really have to worry about some people.

    I suppose that cases like that are proof that truth is stranger than fiction, aren't they?
