Hi all,

Are there any future lawyers or university Law students who took/take Public Law or/and Criminal Law? If so, would you mind if I sent you my practice essays for either just to get a second opinion on it and see if it's worth a good pass? These are practice essays that I used to prepare for our end of year exams.

If you don't mind helping me out please let me know.

Thanks a million!

I have some recommendations you can use when writing a Law essay. Use the following structure:

Introduction - outline the area of law the scenario relates to.

Describe the law involved - this includes the actus reus and mens rea elements.

Apply the law to the scenario.

Defences - if any defences apply, outline the law relating to the relevant defence. At any stage you can use help of https://writix.co.uk/case-study-writing-help .

Apply the defence to the scenario - clarify whether or not the defence can be successfully pleaded by the defendant.

Conclusion - suggest the outcome of the scenario; whether or not the defendant is liable for their offence or not.

Not it's not really. I'm not asking anyone to write the essay for me. They're practice essays, not the real thing. I just wanted a second opinion from another law student or experienced student on what I could improve on like structure, writing technique, if I should include more case law etc. Not for particular information.

Thank you, I did use IRAC but it's hard for me to stick with it. I'll try this
