7159AFE Research Based Hypothetical Assignment Help
Student answers to the hypothetical questions must be written under the framework of – Issues, Law, Application and Conclusion (ILAC).
Your final submission will be assessed according to the criteria sheet available on the L@G course site. The marking scheme follows the ILAC method and assesses your written communication skills. Students should scrutinise the scheme before submitting their assignment to ensure they have covered all relevant requirements.
As this is a research-based assignment, you are expected to find relevant cases and sections of legislation which are not located in your prescribed textbook or lecture materials. The short video provides a summary of secondary and primary materials that you may wish to find to improve your understanding of Consumer Law and Law of Negligence and to provide support for your answer. It can be found in the 'hypothetical assignment folder' under the assessment tab.
Submission via SafeAssign
Your assignment answer should be uploaded to SafeAssign on or before 20 May 2016 17:00 (Week 11). Student answers must be typed (no hand written answers) and should have the student’s name, student number and word count clearly visible.
Maximum Word Limit: 1,700 words. Penalties apply if the word limit is exceeded according to University Policy.
Assessment weighting: 20% of total course marks
- 80% of the marks for this assignment are allocated to the content of your response. This is marked by the course lecturer.
- 20% of the marks for this assignment are allocated to the English Written Communication style of your response. This is marked by the English and Academic Skills Tutor.
- Please only submit one assignment through SafeAssign.
- The assignment question covers Consumer Protection Law and the Law of Negligence (Weeks 4-5).
- There is no one correct answer. This is the beauty (and frustration) of the law. I do not have a set marking guide which states what a 20/20 answer will look like. Students may rely on different (but relevant) law, but come to a different conclusion. Provided that the students’ application is supported by relevant law and is persuasive, then two students could have different answers but still receive the same high mark.
- As you are answering a research-based hypothetical assignment you need to provide a reference list which includes the primary and secondary sources of law you considered when providing your answer (the word count does not include the reference list). When first referring to relevant cases or sections of legislation that you apply in answering a legal issue, please correctly cite the law in full. For example, Donoghue v Stevenson  AC 562 (case law) and section 9 of the Civil Liability Act 2003 (Qld) (legislation). Further references to the same case or legislation may then be abbreviated. For example, Donoghue v Stevenson and section 9 CLA.
- Although there may be multiple issues identified and discussed in your answer, please only provide one conclusion to each question in which you are asked to provide advice. In other words you do not need one conclusion for every issue that you address in your answer to each question.
Be mindful of the number of marks allocated to each question. The time (and word count) you spend for each question should take into account the weighting of each question.
