Criminal Law Reform Assessment

For my criminal law assessment, I am to argue for reform in a criminal law area of my choosing.

The areas of law I can choose from are:
Murder
gross neg manslaughter
loss of control
Hate Crimes
Coercive and controlling behaviour
Sexual offences
None fatal offences
defences

Which are these would be the easiest to argue, I'm thinking with maybe the most sources of information I can use to build my argument.

Thanks.

For vacation schemes, internships and insight days, which of these are available to first years?

@Reality Check @harrysbar
Can you answer this for me, please?
I think insight days are definitely for first years but I'm not sure what they are. Are they something I can put on my CV?
Also, If I'm applying for an internship/insight with available spaces in cities all over the country, and I say attend Manchester Uni, are they expecting me to choose Manchester as my first choice location over say Birmingham?
It's just that I've seen on here before that law firms often prefer to hire people from unis from the same city that they are in. .

Thanks for the tag.

Insight Days are specifically designed for first-year undergrads who know they want a career in law - most recruitment stuff is aimed at second and third years, so an I.D. is great for a first-year student, but not for a student at your stage.

I think the highest academic achievement is much more important than applying to a firm in the same city, which would be a very minor consideration.
