I think that's what they're going to ask for the 15 mark essay. I think the question would look something like "Examine the meaning and significance of 'fault' within criminal law..." or "Examine the meaning and significance of 'fault' in civil AND criminal law...". The essay I prepared gives examples of laws that are fault-based and not fault-based and why. We don't know if they're going to ask us about just criminal law or both criminal and civil law so you should prepare two versions of the essay.

was wondering, voluntary intoxication and self induced automatism sound really similiar to me, what are the differences like how would i be able to tell if a defence is supposed to be self induced automatism or voluntary intox.

The intro could be like "Fault is important in criminal/civil law because... " and then you can choose some laws which are fault-based and not fault-based and why For example "self-defence is fault-based because it requires honest belief to use force. So if the defendant believed they needed to use force to protect themselves they're not at fault, so they can use the defence.". When explaining why some laws aren't fault-based you can explain that it's for public policy reasons (e.g. constructive liability is not fault-based but can act as a deterrent). And you can do something similar for civil law if they ask.
What I do is to break the law down (e.g. self-defence has two parts, honest belief to use force and whether a reasonable amount of force is used) and explain how each part makes the law fault/not fault-based because I find that easier. I hope this is useful.

The advanced information says "...including the meaning and importance of fault in civil and/or criminal law.". they're probably going to ask bout either just criminal law or both criminal and civil law. I don't think they'll ask you about just tort law since it's on paper 1.

Can anyone explain to me - specific intent?


Is it another word for intention that they just threw in there to make everything complex.
From my understanding specific intent - intention, basic intent - recklessness.

I feel pleased with mine - although question 10 and 11 took up most my time, more than normal!! I managed to answer all the questions and had a minute or two to check through.

I don't think it was difficult per say but I am surprised at certain things included (not sure how much I am allowed to discuss) and it felt like there was a lot of indicitative content in the 30 markers, which is perhaps both a positive and negative.

I'd rate the 30 markers a bit more difficult that previous papers but all the other questions were very easy and straight forward.
