Especially if you cannot think of any flaws!

Regarding the vicarious liability case with Morrisons last year...

Just off the top of my head, do you not think there was a racial element to the case? I always thought the SC looked to recover for the family of the deceased. I'm sure it was argued there was a break in the chain when he followed him to his car, so away from his 'course of employment' and into 'personal vengence'. A little bit like Mattis v Pollack, though obviously without the instruction to intimidate from the employer. It was a pretty controversial case so there should be some documented analysis online.

Would it not take months of daily reading to evaluate something like this.

Nope as a law student they would be expected to be able to analyse a case fairly quickly by doing some research and understanding the issues. They can then give a critical evaluation on what the decision was, how they reached it, the implications, whether there were any flaws and whether they agreed with it.


It s simply a case of research, evaluation and forming an opinion. Same thing as writing a history or literature essay. they already have the skills to do it otherwise why are they reading law?

Look up the case on Westlaw/Lexis and there'll most likely be case notes on it
