Imagine you are applying for a position in an organisation which has been set up to advise parliament on reforms which are necessary to make the law of criminal liability more just.
As part of the assessment process, you are asked to write a paper on the following:
What reform would you make, and why, to ONE of the following:
a) Omission’s liability
b) The mens rea of murder
c) Voluntary manslaughter
d) The law of complicity
e) The defence of duress
Your instructions are that the paper should:
I. Start by providing a succinct explanation of the area of criminal law upon which you have decided to focus (i.e., one of a-e above). This should explain the area of law clearly and accurately.
II. Explain clearly the reform which you are proposing and how it would change the scope of criminal liability.
III. Explain why you think this reform will make the law of criminal liability more just.
IV. Identify any objections to the proposed reform which are likely to arise and explain how these objections will be met.
V. Substantiate all claims and arguments made with regard to appropriate sources. These sources should be indicated by accurate footnote references.
