Examine the nature of judicial independence and the role played by law reforms in enhancing or undermining that independence

Assessment Task You are required to submit an essay on the following title:
Examine the nature of judicial independence and the role played by law reforms in enhancing or undermining that independence. Guidance

1. You are required to conduct research and demonstrate that you have drawn on legal and academic sources. In other words your analysis must be supported by argument evidenced by law and academic research or discourse from academic journals.

2. You need to discuss the attributes of judicial independence and consider whether the judiciary’s independence has been put at risk or has been supported when the legislature and executive have introduced reforms.

3. Your essay should focus on judicial independence as it applies in England & Wales but you may draw on academic commentary on the issue in other common law jurisdictions.

4. You are required to reference at least two different sources.

5. You will be marked down if you refer to non-legal or non-academic sources in your submission. Accordingly: a. Law text books available in the library or their e-book versions and law journal articles from Westlaw and Lexis Library are appropriate sources you should use; and b. Political and news blogs and websites and information sites like Wikipaedia are not appropriate sources of law or academic comment for inclusion in your submission and therefore will not be accepted for that purpose.

6. Most text books on the English Legal System discuss judicial independence and recent reforms.

7. Journals may be accessed in Lexis Library and/or Westlaw UK. The New Law Journal (available on Lexis Library) frequently publishes articles that consider judicial independence.

8. Reference the sources you rely on using the OSCOLA referencing convention.

9. Guidance on research and writing essays may be found in chapters 8 and 14 of the module text book Legal Systems, Ethics & Skills (4th edition) by S Slorach, J Embley, P Goodchild and C Shepherd.



10.You are advised to plan a systematic approach to your research and keep notes of what you discover to refer to and reference it when you write up your essay.

11.Poor structure, composition or grammar will affect the quality of your submission and may even prevent the marker understanding your analysis. Therefore, you should proof read your essay before you submit it for marking and make sure you have written what you intend to say
