Question: Formative assessment (2)
Problem Question

Stavros and Freya each own land in a local village. Stavros originally ran a horticultural business from his property, Wellsummer Manor. Wellsummer Manor comprises a large house and surrounding fields. Freya owns the nearby farm, Freymeadow Farm, where she has enough space to keeps sheep and goats. The titles to Wellsummer Manor and Freymeadow Farms are unregistered.

Years ago, Freya bought a herd of buffalo. There was not enough room for the buffalo on Freymeadow Farm. Stavros allowed Freya to use his land so the buffalo could roam more freely. In 2003, Stavros and Freya entered into a year-long agreement to that effect, on the understanding that the agreement would be renewed. Stavros’s business began to suffer so he stopped trading and went backpacking around the world. As a result, the agreement between Stavros and Freya was never renewed but Freya continued using Stavros’s land. She even erected signs that say ‘Freya’s Buffalo Ranch’.

Earlier this year, Stavros returned from his travels, having run out of money. Stavros now realises that his land must now be worth substantially more than when he purchased it. He wishes to sell the land to release capital but Freya insists that she and her buffalo are entitled to stay put.

(a) Advise Freya.
(b) How, if at all, would your advice differ if the title to Wellsummer Manor were registered?

Answer: This problem question discusses the issue of adverse possession. This is a method of gaining legal title to real property by the...

Question: PQ: Ralph and Sophie are actors in an action film. There is a scene in which they throw knives at each other. Sophie and Ralph agree that they should film the scene with real knives in order to make it as realistic as possible, despite the obvious dangers.

Sophie in fact hates Ralph and throws a knife not caring whether or not it harms him. The knife narrowly misses Ralph’s head. Ralph throws a knife at Sophie aware there is a strong chance that it will hit her in the leg but assuming that under their agreement Sophie is prepared to take that risk.

The knife cuts Sophie in the stomach. She is taken to the emergency room of a hospital.

Dr Tao, who has drunk several pints of beer while on her shift, examines Sophie and seriously over-estimates the severity of the wound. She incorrectly tells Sophie that she is likely to be paralyzed for the rest of her life. Sophie as a result decides she would rather die and refuses all forms of treatment. The wound therefore becomes infected and Sophie dies.

What crimes, if any, have been committed?

Answer: This essay explores Ralph’s and Dr Tao’s criminal liability in causing Sophie’s death. Ultimately, it would conclude that Sophie’s refusal to treatment...
