How would you structure a 30 mark contract law questions??. Involving formation of a contract, Consumer Rights Act 2015 (s.9,10,11 + remedies).

Hi Impoor123

That really depends on the type of question it is but if it is a problem question ( a scenario) then I use the structure called IRAC:

First you need to identify what the ISSUE is (for example in contract, is there an offer or is it an invitation to treat?)
then you need to identify the RELEVANT LAW (so this might be a statute or it may be case law that applies e.g Carlill v Carbolic Smoke Ball)- you need to explain what the principle of that law is.
after which, you APPLY the law to the facts of your own problem,
finally you CONCLUDE by stating the likely outcome (e.g. there was an offer and the client should do x,y and z).

Many questions contain more than one issue so separate the work out into sections that address each issue. If an issue is raised twice (as sometimes it can be), don't rewrite IRAC twice, just do it once and refer back to it where necessary.

Hope that helps!
