Description
Assessment task details and instructions
You are to answer ALL THREE questions.

  1. In August 2008, a judge criticised the CPS solicitor who produced an indictment in a criminal case that was
    ‘littered with errors’ including five misspellings of the word ‘grievous’ and a reference to an offensive weapon
    ‘namely axe’ (rather than ‘namely an axe’). Judge David Paget threw the indictment down saying: –
    ‘It’s quite disgraceful. This is supposed to be a centre of excellence. To have an indictment drawn up by some
    illiterate idiot is just not good enough’.
    The Senior partners are concerned that the standard of legal writing skills is decreasing each year within the
    firm.

    legal writing.
