Have fun. I am going to do a Lord Hoffman and get involved with Amnesty International. :cool:

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?

Not that I've noticed, but I've been busy and haven't really kept up with things.

But by people telling you, wouldn't that give you an unfair advantage?
