Question: “The doctrine of limited liability can best be understood as a matter of risk allocation.

Question: ‘In order to constitute a valid contract, the parties must so express themselves that their meaning can be determined with a reasonable degree of certainty. It is plain that unless this can be done … consensus ad idem would be a matter of mere conjecture’
Scammell and Nephew Ltd v Ouston [1941] AC 251

Using case law critically analyse the accuracy of this statement and the role of certainty. This is an individual essay piece of summative assessment.

Answer: For the courts to enforce a binding contract, the parties involved must express their agreement in a way that is sufficiently certain. The traditional assertion, discussed by Fridman, is that contracts need...

Question: Jack and Jill have been married for 4 years. Jill has a 7-year-old daughter from a previous relationship but has been unable to conceive a much longed for second child with Jack.

Over the past year, Jill has been drinking heavily and has become increasingly abusive and violent towards Jack while in this state. Jill typically accuses Jack of being a useless, impotent, failure who cannot give her a child and repeatedly goads him about her former partner’s sexual prowess and reproductive ability. Her violence towards Jack has escalated from punching and kicking him to biting him and beating him with whatever household item is closest to hand. Jack has responded to the various modes of assault by restraining her arms, pushing her away and trying to disarm her of whatever item she is using as a weapon.

On this last occasion of verbal abuse and violence, Jill has told him that she intended to go back to her previous partner, who she described as “a real man who knows how to satisfy a woman”. She then lunged blows at Jack’s head with her daughter’s hockey stick.

Furious and also in fear of violence, Jack “snapped”, tore the hockey stick out of her hands and brought it down repeatedly on Jill’s head until she collapsed on the sofa.

Consider Jack’s criminal liability and any defence(s) he may have in relation to BOTH possible outcomes set out below:

Outcome 1) As a result of Jack’s actions, Jill suffers a fractured skull and brain injury from which she dies
AND
Outcome 2) As a result of Jack’s actions, Jill suffers a fractured skull and brain injury but survives after medical treatment.

Answer: Outcome 1) To be liable for any homicide offence the defendant must cause the death of another human. The required actus reus of homicide as a result crime, is that the defendant’s...

Question: “In an earlier part of this work stress was laid upon the essential distinction between the “law of the constitution,” which, consisting (as it does) of rules enforced or recognized by the Courts, makes up a body of “laws” in the proper sense of that term, and the “conventions of the constitution,” which consisting (as they do) of customs, practices, maxims, or precepts which are not enforced or recognized by the Courts, make up a body not of laws but of constitutional or political ethics…”
(A.V. Dicey Introduction to the study of the Law of the Constitution 1885, 8E 1915 Liberty Classics, page 277)

Explain, illustrate and comment on this distinction between “laws of the constitution” (“enforced or recognized by the courts”) and “conventions of the constitution” (“not enforced or recognized by the courts”). Discuss whether Dicey’s formulation of the distinction is so absolute that it fails to account effectively for the way constitutional conventions work in the modern UK constitution.

Answer: Constitutional conventions are the primary source of non-legal constitutional rules which govern constitutional behaviour and are considered binding to those whom they apply. Dicey discusses an essential distinction between formal constitutional laws...
