Reaction Paper #1 Chapters 2 & 3 Students ask what is a reaction paper? The reaction papers has two parts. 1st- The student should figure on writing a two page single spaced paper stating the significant information that they have gained from the chapter readings. Students will vary on what is important to them and that is fine. Sometimes a student already knows about what their reading and the finer points of the chapter are the focus. For others the basics are new and most important. 2nd-The reaction part of the paper is your response to what you have been assigned to read. A reaction is personal in nature. At times the criminal justice system is more complicated than what you thought. Your impression of what your learning is based upon your opinions of the subject matter that you just read. For example, some people dont believe in a death penalty. If so, they would be concerned about a system that provides one. Another example would be the belief that prisoners should always do hard labor. When the student reads about rehabilitation programs in prisons they may disagree and so on. Overall, the idea is to get the student thinking about their reading. There are no wrong or right answers. TEXTBOOK: larry j.Siegel, CRIMINOLOGY, 11TH ED.,WADSWORTH

‘Criminalising behaviour related to child sexual grooming is appropriate, but hard to achieve in practice.’ Critically discuss.

Critically discuss this statement with reference to one substantive area of property law. You should draw on case law, statute and academic opinion.

• Identify legal issues.
• Display knowledge of legal rules and principles.
• Apply the law to complex fact situations.
• Distinguish between the relevant and the irrelevant.
• Analyse and evaluate legal doctrines.
• Construct coherent, logical and persuasive arguments.
• Work under pressure, subject to time constraints.
• Writing style.

“It is not the examiner’s job to work out what exactly it is you are trying to say. Rather it is your job to make clear what you are trying to say. If you have particular difficulties writing good prose, keep your sentences relatively short. Make sure that your ideas follow on logically from one another; and, perhaps most importantly of all, take complex ideas and try to simplify them.”

Essay Questions

• Gathering the appropriate materials.

(a) Use lecture notes and textbooks.
(b) Journal articles are important: “they will provide you with arguments for and against various propositions, offer views on how legal disputes should be resolved, present rationales for different legal rules, and so on.”
(c) Look at minority judgments: there you will find the arguments of the majority subjected to criticism, thereby obtaining a summary of the law as it is and criticisms of it.
• Formulating your ideas.

This should be done before you enter the exam room, because it is very difficult to do in the exam under time constraints.
• Dissecting the question.

(a) Work out what the question is asking you to do.

(i) “Explain” (i.e., describe).
(ii) “Discuss” (i.e., explain and assess whether the statement is correct, giving reasons).
(iii) “Critically evaluate” (i.e., assess the success or appropriateness of a particular institution or area of law, as well as explain what it is).

(b) Determine what issues must be addressed in order to do (a) above.
• Structuring and presenting your material effectively.

(a) Answers which need only be descriptive.

“Present your material within a good, clear, tight framework, supported by relevant authority, i.e., there is no need to advance an argument.”

(b) Answers where an argument is required.

“Although a partisan answer is a poor answer, it is better if you map out a point of view – posit a thesis – taking into account the fact that, while there are arguments going in the other direction, they can nonetheless be countered or minimised in view of other factors. In this way you will have committed yourself to a particular position; you will have developed your own argument as to why you have done so; and your answer will be balanced in the sense that you will have recognised opposing arguments.”

(i) Explain the steps you will take to reach your conclusion.
(ii) Do justice to competing arguments and then go on to show how they are fallacious or unsatisfactory.
(iii) Outline the general principle first and then give a concrete example.
(iv) Demonstrate your ability to make fine distinctions.
(v) Do not be led by the academic authorities. Impose your own structure on the material you have been asked to consider.

– Sources should be mainly from the UK, not USA or somewhere else.
– References should be more academic, like books, articles, journals, not non-academic websites.

Criminal Law Exam

I need assistance in preparing answers for my exam in January. I have not had time to revise so therefore I would like a Writer that is qualified in Criminal Law to help me with revising my exam questions by directing me to the right path to my exam questions.

Your exam will consist of three questions and you will need to answer any two of these questions. Statutes will be provided where applicable, but they should not be used as a replacement for learning the law as in many areas the law has come from cases, which supplement the statutes, particularly in the area of non-fatal offences. it is also not enough to copy out the statute, you need to apply the relevent parts to the problem.All questions are problem questions and they will be marked on their merit, each worth equal marks. You need to do two things – you need to explain what the law is and also explain how this applies to the question. (For example, do not just say that ‘the actus reus of battery is application of unlawful force’, also then state that ‘Fred applied unlawful force to Jim when he slapped his face.’)Questions will cover the following areas:1. Murder. Defences of diminished responsibility and loss of control.2. Unlawful act and gross negligence manslaughter, including causation.3. Non fatal offences with the defences of consent, intoxication and automatism.
I will provide you with my university login in details so you can access my student portal with all the relevant documents for my exam.

Policing ( criminology)

MAKE A POSTER ON WORD OR MICROSOFT PUBLISHER ONLY. MAINLY TEXT AND ONE OR TWO PICTURES AND GRAPHS Imagine that if printed out, your poster would be displayed as A2 size. This DOES NOT mean that your actual e-poster template needs to be A2!! It’s just for ‘imaginative’ purposes.
All sources of info on your poster need referencing according to the Harvard system. It may be simpler to reference pictures on the poster itself by putting:
Source: ….
under the specific picture in question. All images, data, text, quotes – everything needs to be referenced. DO NOT include a bibliography (this is not the same as a reference list).
There is no min/max in terms of number of sources to be used – but variety = greater accuracy. The poster needs a variety of information types – text, images, data – thus you need to consult a range of sources to collate this. Be sure you utilise academic sources too.All posters will be checked with anti-plagiarism software.
Police culture
police leadership
police complaints process
policing domestic abuse
policing drugs
neighbourhood policing
Choose 1 theme to focus on for your poster. Remember – each theme is quite broad so you can focus in on a specific angle of your choice.

Once you have chosen a theme, you need to decide which audience your poster will be aimed at – the simplest way of thinking about this is imagining that your poster will be displayed in either:
a) A police station (so the audience will be police officers) OR
b) In a community centre (so the target audience is the community in general or a specific part of the community; OR
c) In the office of a PCC (so the target audience is the PCC themself).

Deciding who your target audience is, is crucial as it determines what your message should be, how that message should be conveyed and what info should be presented (and in what way).

Remember – your poster may seek to
raise awareness on a specific theme (eg – raise awareness in the local community about how to make a complaint against the police)
highlight a specific issue (eg – highlight to the PCC the successes made by the police and partners in tackling drugs);
reinforce a belief/practice (e.g. – reinforcing to the police the importance of thorough investigations re domestic abuse incidents) .

use a graphs annotate it, some text make some text thats more important stand out more than others ie make it bold , use pictures that are relevant and maybe annotate the picture. make it so it has a visual impact . all of the refencing should be in italics

For the referencing

I also forgot to add that what the poster is being assessed on is the ability to identify and analyse a range of data on a specific theme, ability to tell a rational ,coherent and factual story , the ability to distinguish the significance and I pact of this issue, ability to organise and present information in a appropriate manner to the chosen audience and ability to reflect where appropriate on how policing has been informed by past events, previous policies and how this has impacted on contemporary police .
