I’m using the IRAC method so I’m firstly saying what’s the issue ie the crime being committed, I’m then talking about the actus Reus of the crime and the men’s rea. Am I at this point supposed to apply the law , I really Have no idea on how to apply the law, where do I start from, am I just staying everything that is in that law or what. Thank you in advance, I’d really appreciate the help as I’m so confused and wasn’t given much information by my tutors on assessment guidance.

1. Start by identifying the possible legal issue. eg. GBH always start with the most serious offence. Consent.
2. Identify the potential criminal event. eg. A punches B and caused a deep cut.
3. potential criminal offence. eg. A punches B can amount to GBH and listed out which section it might be fallen into.
4. Actus Reus
5. Mens Rea
6. Defence
7. Conclusion
Hope it helps.

Application means applying the law the the facts. I'll use contract law as an example;

A offers to sell his PS2 for £100, B sends a message to A saying if I'll buy the PS2 and if I dont hear back from you by tomorrow, I'll consider it sold to me. A sold the PS2 to C. B sued A.

In the format of IRAC;
Issue - Can silence amount to acceptance?
Rule - No it can not as per Felthouse v Bindley
Application - A has not communicated his acceptance to B because silence does not amount to acceptance.
Conclusion - No legal contract has therefore been formed between A & B and A is free to sell the PS2 to C.

Sometimes the application merges with conclusion.
