PART A Media report analysis (8 marks)

1. Identify aspects of your chosen media report that relate to the law with reference to the areas of
law listed in Chapter 1 of the FPBL Source Book. Not all of these areas of law will be relevant,
but each article involves at least three areas of law. Students should not just provide a bare
conclusion, but also explain why that particular area of law is relevant.
(2 marks)

2. The law has various functions. It:
· Allows people to organise and plan;
· Encourages or discourages particular activities;
· Creates rights and duties that can be enforced; and

· Provides remedies when right are interfered with or duties are not discharged.

Demonstrate how the law functions in these various ways with reference to specific examples
within your chosen media report and the areas of law you identified in Part A, question 1. You
need only provide one example per point. However, you must discuss all four of these functions.
Where possible, each point should use a different area of law as illustration. Be sure to explain
specifically how and why you came to this conclusion.
(3 marks)

3. With reference to the legal issues reported on in the chosen media report describe why it is
important to know the law in these circumstances?
(3 marks)
