"Evaluate the view that modern liberals have abandoned the principles of classical liberalism" - I'd need help with possible factors and the way I should structure it as this is my first 24 marker. I know I need to refer to key thinkers and such

I hate those pesky 24 markers!
You need intro and 2-4 paragraphs.

Generally, per para I'd suggest:
a comparative topic sentence (Modern and classic liberals disagree/agree to x extent on ...)
What do Moderns think? (Thinker if can)
How does this compare to the principles of clasicals? (another thinker if can- compare the two)
SOMETIMES COUNTER ARGUMENT - so if you're saying that they disagree to a moderate extent, well where do they partially agree? and vice versa. If you've said to a large extent you might not need a counter but it's always good to have some as then you're evaluating more.
Mini-Conclusion. Have they abandoned the principles or not?

Introduction you could do what we do: Define terms, discuss different POV, decide on your stance.
Conclusion is kinda similar just without define.

Usually you can pick 3 - 4 main themes, being: Social policy, Economic Policy, Welfare (if you can separate it from social... you can't always), Role of State.

For that question I'd say something about how modern liberalism is a continuation of classic liberalism because it has similar principles, just they're more fit for the society we're in now, where classic liberalism was relevant to its time. You can also see that with the thinkers, as the thinkers get closer to our time period now, they become more and more modern...ly? liberal.

It's a hard question but it gives you quite a bit of scope! I hope this was somewhat helpful.
