Has anyone evaluated some recent and recommended reforms they could send me? Thank you! I find this so confusing

Hey! The evaluation really comes down to selecting a recent or recommended reform and then critically thinking about whether they do or do not achieve the principles of justice. What reforms are you thinking of talking about in your exam? Have a go at writing down a response and we can go from there :)

Hey thank you, thats where I am a bit lost. Do I need to know a recent and recommended reform for costs, time and accessibility for both criminal and civil law? or do I just choose one recent and one recommended from each civil and criminal ?

The study design says that we are required to know a recent and recommended reform for cost, time and cultural factors for criminal, and cost, time and accessibility factors for civil. Therefore, if you want to play it safe, you should know one recent and one recommended reform for each. (Because worst case scenario, the exam can ask for students to write about a recommended reform addressing time, for example). However, imo, I believe it is more likely a question will ask us to refer to a recent and/or recommended reform in relation to the criminal/civil justice system, so if you're feeling pushed for time in terms of learning content, I'd say learning one-two recent and recommended reforms for both the criminal and civil justice system as a whole should be sufficient. No guarantee though, unfortunately.

Just quickly go and read the wording of the Study Design again on that one.

Megan is correct; my explanation was a tad incorrect, sorry! The study design actually states that we are required to know reforms that achieve the principles of justice (not one for each factor of cost, time and access). The Justice & Outcomes textbook splits its reforms under these categories, however. Just make sure whatever reform you choose to write about, you mention how it achieves the principles of justice.
