There are many ways. I think a lot of people structure it with a mark for an intro and conclusion and 4 marks per strength and weaknesses. Personally, the way I always wrote mine were with juxtaposing strengths and weaknesses and usually 5 of each given that it was a straight str/wkns question. Last year I have 2 marks to the role of VLRC iirc and 8 marks for str/wkn of the jury system. Do give you a basic template, if the question was
"Critically evaluate the jury system"

One strength of the jury system is that it represents a cross-section of society. *talk about why this is good*. However , in having a cross-section of society, jury members are inexperienced and this may cause them to act with personal prejudices. *bit more discussion*
Another strength of the jury system is that accused persons found not-guilty cannot be tried again. *talk about why this is good*. However this means that if there is more evidence in future, a guilty person may walk free. *talk about why this is bad*

So just.
-strength-. however, -weakness-
-next strength-, although -weakness-
-next strength-, this being said -weakness-

I found it a logical way to structure my responses and found that it helped with remembering them as the corresponding weaknesses popped up when you remembered the strength. Just my two cents.

Brenden's strategy to structuring your paragraphs is the best way to do it by far and I highly suggest you incorporate his strategy
