    Hey,

    In the Unit 2 paper (Intro. to Criminal Liability and Intro. to tort) you of course have to use cases when explaining Strict Liability for example you can use Harrow LBC v Shah.

    Can you use a single name when referencing a case? Even if it's not too long such as Harrow LBC v Shah, is just putting Shah sufficient?

    Thanks.

    There isn't s right answer tbh... Some examiners don't care while others do. I always use a short version of the full name (including both parties, that is) - I'm doing a degree rather than A-levels though.

    I think it'd be better to be safe than sorry.

    Thank you, I think trying to use it all is the best course of action. Very few cases are so long to not be memorable to be fair.
