    Speaking from experience... Don't over complicate the question they'll be questions that say explain, discuss, briefly discuss and outline... If it asks for an outline or briefly discuss no need to go OTT on the question.

    Predictions for this year:

    Causation
    Contemp rule
    Offence wise- S47/S20
    Summary offence procedure
    Aggravating/ mitigating factors

    Civil is usually about the same questions every year (duty, breach, damage and remoteness, three track system and damages) but got a feeling the principle of res ispa loquitor will appear ( ranging anywhere between 5-8 marks)

    I too think Comtemp rule and caustion will come up
    But for the Non Fatal section I think it's going to be Assault(so common but didn't come up last year) and ABH S.47 (also common) with Assault or Battery //causation

    If they use S.47 ABH it covers assault and/or battery so I think it'll be S.20 :-)

    What cases go with legal causation? I have it down as the Pagett case but that is usually in intervening acts, right?

    DO NOT PUT PADGETT DOWN AS LEGAL CAUSATION!Causation refers to proving Ds act or omission was the cause of the prohibited consequence.Factual causation - but for test ( Case wise use white and Padgett. In white D was held not to be the factual causation of his mothers death as she died of a heart attack and not as a result of drinking the poisoned milk. However in Padgett D was held to be the factual cause 'but for him using his girlfriend as a human shield she would have not been shot and have died as a result'Legal causation simply means asking was D the substantive and operative cause of Vs injury or death (smith)There are situations where the chain may have been broken, meaning D will no longer be liable.. This can occur in 3 waysVs own act (Roberts)Act of third party (smith or Jordan)Act of GodBriefly mention thin skull rule (Blaue)Hope this helps???Posted from TSR Mobile

    For the three track system what financial limits are people using, apparently the limits have changed for high court from 50k to 100k
    Yeah cases over 100k now heard in the HC.

    Will the old limits still be accepted?
    No. It's only a minor change... Surely you can remember it for tomorrow?
