Are police questioning, searches, arrests etc. all part of criminal pre-trial procedures? I always seem to use committal or directions hearings, but I was just wondering if I can use this as well? I could imagine a question like this as a 10 mark question in the near distant future. :(

yes it is a pre-trial but no way would it be a 10 marker

Last year was the first year they had a 10 marker on juries so anything is possible. There's quite a bit of meat in pre-trial procedures

That would be a nightmare come true... The only part of the course which my mind wonders, and it is a 10 mark question. :P

just had a quick look over it....seems there are ALOT of 2-4 mark questions which is a bit different to other exams i've come across.
Other then that looks good- hope to god there will be a 10 mark adversary question on the final exam- love em!  :D

ME TOO. I think the adversary system was the most straightforward thing we learnt this year in legal.

Lol yeh there are quite a few 2 mark questions haha.

It's good practise though to expect the unexpected. :P
However, don't get fooled on the 2 markers and make sure you explain everything fully and read the questions carefully.
There are though, the 2 + 2 + 2 questions which were broken up to test as much of the course as possible :)

amm i've done 3/4 of it quite easily except for one section. Something about a supreme court where it says explain two ways in which a judge can avoid which was worth 2 marks i think. I said reverse but i was thinking overruling or distinguishing for the other mark however that did not really suit.

what did you put down if you know what the hell i'm on about?

I cant find the emails that we had that had some of the discussion on the acceptable  answers to thsat question. perhaps PM Fyrefly and ask her if she has the PMs that we had or the documents that had discussion on that question and the accptable answers.
