Question: Rita is a diabetic. One morning, on the way to work, she is raped by John. Despite being traumatised by the rape she makes her way to work. A little later, while sitting at her desk, she succumbs to hyperglycaemia, having forgotten to take her insulin due to the trauma of the rape. She becomes very confused. Moeen, a male colleague, notices that Rita is looking unwell. He goes over to her, puts his hand on her shoulder and asks her if she is all right. Rita, in her confusion, thinks Moeen intends to rape her and so punches him in the groin.

David sees this happening and, assuming wrongly that Moeen was harassing Rita tells Moeen ‘to pick on somebody your own size and gender’. An argument starts and they agree to ‘settle things’ in the boxing ring in the work’s gym. They fight together one evening and each suffers cuts and bruises.

Discuss.

Question: Aquafun Co is looking to purchase a new swimming pool complex to expand its operations into South West England. After a long search, a complex built in 1970, owned by Waterplanet, is found.

Question: Part I: Employment Tribunal Visit (1000 words)

Part II: Employment Tribunal Procedure (1000 words)
Toby Washington was employed as a research scientist by Chemlabs plc. Mr. Washington was dismissed summarily by Chemlabs plc following an investigation into allegations of theft. The investigation into Mr. Washington’s conduct was carried out by senior management in a thorough and professional manner and in accordance with the appropriate procedural requirements. The management uncovered firm evidence that Mr. Washington had committed gross misconduct as defined by the company’s disciplinary procedures, the sanction for which is instant dismissal. During the disciplinary hearing Mr. Washington stated that that he was being falsely accused for raising concerns about the procedure Chemlabs uses for disposing of hazardous waste materials. He asked Chemlabs if it wanted the issue to be reported to the relevant authorities or made public.

Chemlabs plc believe that any complaint against them is wholly without merit. It has no record of Mr. Washington ever raising concerns about the disposal of hazardous waste and it believes that Mr. Washington is motivated by the prospect of extracting a financial settlement from the company. Chemlabs plc is concerned that, notwithstanding the apparent weakness of a potential claim, Mr. Washington’s claim may cause unwanted publicity and unnecessary bureaucracy for the company.

Advise Chemlabs plc. on Employment Tribunal procedures should Mr. Washington complain to a tribunal. How can the company prevent the case proceeding to a full hearing and explain the advantages and disadvantages of the different options available to them in this respect. The company also seek advice on how to minimise adverse publicity for the company should the case proceed to a Tribunal. Please note, this assignment requires you to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of Employment Tribunal procedure and not the substantive law on unfair dismissal.

Question: Dora died earlier this year, leaving a valid will appointing her husband Edwin and her friend Fiona as her trustees and giving all her estate to them to be held on trust ‘for Edwin during his lifetime and then for such of my children Alice, Boris and Cassandra who reach 21 and if more than one in equal shares’. The will contained no other provisions. Alice, Boris and Cassandra are Dora’s children by an earlier marriage. Alice is now 23, Boris is 18 and Cassandra is 15. The trust fund was worth £600,000 when Dora died.

Fiona speaks to her writer friend Gerald who has made a substantial amount of money from his own investments. He recommends that the trustees should invest £150,000 of trust money in an investment portfolio which subsequently increases in value to £300,000 and another £150,000 in shares in Sound Plc. The remainder of the trust fund is put into a bank account. Sound Plc goes into insolvent liquidation a few months later and the shares therefore become worthless.

Edwin does not particularly like Dora’s children and he has a poor relationship with them. Recently Alice asked the trustees for £40,000 from the trust to enable her to set up a dog grooming business. Boris is about to go to university in London to study politics and he has asked the trustees if he can have some money from the trust to help him with living expenses.

Partly as a result of their poor relationship with Edwin, Alice and Boris are now considering whether it would be possible to end the trust and divide the trust fund between the beneficiaries.

You are asked to provide practical legal advice, specifically addressing the above facts and appropriately citing all relevant authority in answering the following questions, which carry equal weight:

(a) Whether the trustees have acted lawfully in making their investment decisions and what consequences may follow if not

(b) Whether Alice and Boris can receive help from the trust, as requested

(c) Whether, and if so how, your answer to (b) would be different if Edwin has now died

(d) Whether the trust can be ended and if so, how this could be achieved. You may assume for this part of the question that the facts are as in part (c) above.

Question: ‘Hart successfully explains the normative character of law by relying on his analysis of rules. But he acknowledges that a system of rules constitutes a body of law only if the bulk of the population obey, and he concedes that only the officials need to adopt an “internal point of view”. In the end, therefore, Hart reduces law to the governance of force.’

Critically assess the above statement.
