    Studying Abroad

    I looked into studying in a shitty country. High end degrees were still very competitive, though it would depend on what you want to do... From what I saw it's better to stay in Australia (higher pay, easier entry, better living conditions etc) but you should research it yourself.

    Laptop Advice....HELP Please!

    I'm not sure that you need a laptop for uni. While many people do use laptops, I just write down notes in my notebook and I think that helps improve my writing for the final exams. If I were you I would wait a few weeks into your degree to see if you actually need a laptop before spending the money.

    Is University worth it ?

    dunno at uws orientation they said they wont be bringing up the fees at uws tho. so maybe it depends on uni. it also depends on how much u'd earn without a degree.... presumably u'd make a lot less only having a high school certificate rather than a 5 year degree. plus, the website showed a...

    USYD and UNSW law transfer 2016

    Section I: Multiple Choice

    To be fair I was able to find a judgment from Victoria where they used the terminology of 'self-defence' without what was said in Cornelissen.

    Section I: Multiple Choice

    There are three types of homicide which are murder, voluntary manslaughter and involuntary manslaughter. I want to clarify what these are. Then I will try to explain why self-defence can't really be used for involuntary manslaughter. The actus reus elements for all homicides are contained in...

    Section I: Multiple Choice

    If a person was charged with manslaughter on those facts, I think it would have to be a manslaughter by an unlawful and dangerous act. I think this would require proving that there was an assault, and that this assault was dangerous. Self-defence could act as a defence to the assault. But the...

    Section I: Multiple Choice

    Mens rea for murder (s18 Crimes Act 1900 NSW) = intent to kill, intent to inflict grievous bodily harm ("really serious injury" - DPP v Smith), recklessness (foresight of probability of death - Crabbe; Royall), or constructive murder (murder committed during 25+ yr crime). So that's murder -...

    Section I: Multiple Choice

    Actually strict liability means honest and reasonable mistake of fact (He Kaw Teh). What you're talking about is absolute liability. But I don't think that's in the legal studies syllabus. Can someone post the paper? I'm curious about how I would go now that I'm actually in law school.
