    is it necessary to just refer to actual laws or should a case always be stated to back it up?

    thanks in advance

    Well, if for example, it's an essay about Theft you'd need to refer to the Theft Act 1968 and put cases in.

    If it's for A-level, I always just wrote "as in ..case.." at the end of my point.

    The main thing with talking about cases is case law, as long as you include the points of law from cases it will be fine, also for very important cases its worth mentioning.

    A good way is look at the fact, then law then a case to demonstrate the point of law you are making.
