Part a) causation, manslaughter, duress

part b) involuntary manslaughter, theft act, and something involving defences

Part c) strict liability and criminal attempts

In the mark scheme, one of the AO2 points is that "there are problems when V refuses treatment. Should D be liable if V refuses treatment and how can reasonableness of that decision be tested? This is an area which needs to be revisited". You can expand on that using a case example and say the decision in Blaue can be criticised for its harshness, especially where the principle is extended to religious beliefs.

Apparently Mens Rea is really likely to come up as it hasn't been on in the past 4 years and it's supposed to come up at least every 4 years

Mens rea usually comes up with recklessness right?

Yeah, my teacher said it would be Mens Rea intention and then they can mix it with recklessness too

I know this is a bit late bu here are a few pointers.

It doesn't seem to make doctors liable for medical negligence-therefore seeks retribution of D only.

causation is difficult to prove

not establishing causation doesn't necessarily mean escape from criminal liability

Hope this helps.

For the section B theft question, did anyone just talk about theft and robbery??? I was sat at the end thinking whether burglary was part of the question.

Same, i ended up talking about s.91a and s.91b of burglary as he satisfied the criteria for it. I also talked about robbery as he uses force when he pushes someone.
