You are reminded that it is a breach of University Assessment regulations to copy or use another person’s work without proper acknowledgement. It is also a breach of regulations for two or more students to present the same or substantially similar piece of work. Any student who is found to be in breach of assessment regulations will be subject to an appropriate penalty (ranging from failure of the relevant unit to expulsion from the University).
A breach of assessment regulations cannot be excused by ignorance or external pressures.

No part of your work, except where clearly quoted and referenced (ie: correct use of quotation marks and footnotes etc.), may be copied from material belonging to any other person. You should employ a consistent referencing system throughout your work. eg:

Books: author, title, place of publication, publisher and date

Edited works: author, title of chapter followed by “in” editor(s), name of the work, place of publication, publisher, date and first and last page numbers of the chapter
Quotations: require the above detail plus appropriate page numbers

NB 1: This form of assessment requires the students to analyse the
law, not simply to state what the law is. The examiners will look for clarity,
accuracy, depth of analysis and completeness. The arguments should be
logically structured and backed up with appropriate authority, i.e. the
statutory provision or the relevant case.

Scholarly commentary can also be used to support or explore various arguments, or to discuss a wider issue of law or policy that is relevant to the question.

NB 2: When submitting assignments, a student’s individual work should not be
either nearly or exactly the same as another student’s. In those cases,
the University’s academic misconduct regulations will apply and
the punishment may be severe.

“The Human Rights Act 1998 offers a framework for the enforcement of rights which would otherwise be lacking in order to ensure their effective protection.”

Assess this comment with regard to the relevant provisions of the Human Rights Act 1998 and illustrate argument with relevant case law.

In answering this question students should:

1. Demonstrate an understanding of the Human Rights Act 1998;
2. Examine key cases; and
3. Discuss relevant theories considered in Term One such as universalism and the rule of law.
