Multiple Choice and Short Answer were ok. One or two made me think a bit more than usual in the MC, but overall I think I got them all right in this section.

I found the multiple choice relatively easy. Question 14 threw me for a bit, but I went with "C) Legal", but now I'm thinking it was "B) Economic"...:/ Short answer was pretty good too, I'm pretty confident with that.

Courts, legal aid, specialist tribunals, and specialist peeps like the ombudsman.

Although I went into a bit more detail and did more than three because I wasn't sure if I was answering it right...

The Short Answers (aside for the sources fo int law and doemstic law), the other ones was like 'WTF are you on about?!'


The MC was easy. Just the short answers. Access/justice and that 5 marker. o_O What did you guys put for the 5 marker? something about changing societies or whatever.

The courts aren't accessible.

Generally, the multi-choice was quite easy.
What did everyone put for..

Q 12: Which of the following statements most accurately described the operation of the ruleof law?

(A) All law makers are elected
(B) Al law is made by parliament
(C) Innocent people are free from imprisonment
(D) Police discretion is subject to judicial review

I thought that it was either (B) or (C). At first I thought it was (B) because Australia follows the rule of law and we imprison innocent people (detention centres + when on remand), and because a characteritic of the rule of law is the separation of powers.
However, then I changed to to (C) simply because the courts can make laws also..

EDIT: I now realise that it was probably (D)! .. Shit

Qs 14 and 15 were also a little tricky.
14. I put Legal
15. I put indigenous customary law, but honestly had absolutely no idea! I thought that it would probably have to be indigenous or tort.

You were correct to begin with.

I put legal aid, tribunals and the fact that the law is always published in brochures and on the internet.
