    Hey!
    I’ve not done history for about 6 months now, but I’d approach this question by looking at the domestic policy changes between 1509 and 1529. Look at things like taxes, legal changes (Star Chamber etc), the changes in policies surrounding enclosure and things like the Eltham Ordinances. Assess them (positive and negative impacts) then assess whether the best change to domestic policy between these years were the legal changes. If you don’t think they are - why? What was better than them? What was bad about the legal changes?

    Thank you. I understand the knowledge I need to bring in but do reforms such as taxes/Eltham Ordinances count as 'legal' reforms or is that strictly his policies on the law such as the Star Chamber etc.?

    I would count them as financial/privy chamber changes, or possibly even consolidating his power - he framed them as a money saving change, but did it to place his own men into the privy council if I remember correctly

    Perhaps a quick check with whoever set the essay might be your best bet
    There are so many legal reforms, if you just concentrate on those in the courts it should be easy to write a fairly extensive essay.
    Lots of domestic policy involved the courts anyway so there’s an overlap
    For example the just price policy and enclosures, the farming policy
    I love this time in history, good luck
