    In deserted outskirts of sinister reasoning, thou succumb to inhaling the leisions coersing, besieging, accept the Shadeless fate, to where there is no reckoning or beckoning.

    Yeap, they were standard questions I think. I answered 20 a and 25 a (workplace and family) both of which were easy...

    Re: Section 3 - Focus Studies

    I found the questions good, they were open, but not too open (ie in Shelter had to keep relating it back to protecting the individual buyer / leaser).

    Quite happy with them - see how I go.

    Re: Section 3 - Focus Studies

    i did consumers and workplace, both Question a. i was hoping for law reform, espeecially for workplace, cos its easy to relate every issues to reform. i just didnt have time to check over my essays though, and found it hard ot incorporate cases cos i was rushing.

    Re: Section 3 - Focus Studies

    I did (b) for both Consumers and Family. Looks like I'm in the minority? Somehow dispute mechanisms achieving justice looked easier than law reform to me... Filled a booklet for each but now that I think about it, I'm worried I interpreted it wrong. I took dispute resolution mechanisms to mean anything to do with how in family law for example, disputes about maintenence are handled by the Child Support Agency, and in consumers how the law deals with handling consumer issues/disputes that arise like specific legislation and regulation mechanisms which apply to say financing a purchase as well mentioning as the "alternative" dispute mechanisms like mediation -- oh man, I hope the entire essay wasn't just meant to be on these alternate ones was it? Anyway, hoping for the best...

    goan_crazywhat were the consumers and family questions this year?
    Consumers were:
    - Evaluate the effectiveness of law reform in achieving justice for consumers, including how the law regulates manufacturers
    - Evaluate the effectiveness of dispute resolution methods in achieving justice for consumers, including how the law protects manufacturers
    Family, same but the first - include a discussion of alternative arrangements and in the second - include a disscussion on how the law responds to domestic violence

    Something to that effect anyway.

    i did a.) for consumers
    and i did b.) for family...

    the law reform for consumers easily fit into regulation of businesses
    and the dispute resoultion for family...so easy..talk about divorce children, ADR improving access and resource fficiency :rofl:

    Re: Section 3 - Focus Studies

    a) for both consumers and family

    wrote 11 pages for family. i was really happy. i usually dont write that much. but i reckon my family essay was really good

    consumer was ok- wrote 9. but yeah i did pretty well

    i was really worried about legal for some reason- i was afraid of forgetting everything in the exam. but i didnt. it was all good

    Don't worry that it is the correct interpretation of dispute resolution mechanisms for family. I knew that after the family law reform since 1995 that would ask a question on reform so i did smashing in that 2 full booklets for that one

    World order was great too. I was going to do reform with world order but I decided that I couldn't remember enough about the agencies for reform eg: parliaments! So I decided to go with B for this one which was so good! I loved it! BEST EXAM EVER!!!!

    Haha don't worry I shall join you in the minority b in consumers and family... but God knows what I talked about lol legal didn't count for me so I did a rock-up, no study job... but nah it didn't say "alternative" resolutions so no the essays wouldn't be just on them, and if it was... then I'm going down to the Board of studies and turkey slapping whoever wrote those questions lol
