Business Law Assignment 2022

Please answer all of the questions below. You must demonstrate your knowledge of the subject by making full reference to case law and legislation where it is appropriate. Students should note that as each part carries an equal amount of marks then you should try and devote an equal amount of time to each part.

The deadline for this assignment is Monday 7th November at noon. You must submit via MyPlace by that time, but you can of course submit earlier. Do not leave it until the last minute to submit as there could be a slight delay. Assignments which are submitted late will not be marked and will attract a mark of zero.

The word limit for the assignment is 2000 words. This includes all text including references and footnotes, but not the cover page. Submissions over 2000 words will be penalised. Do not repeat the questions as this will count towards your word limit. For the full rules relating to submission of assignments see the module handbook.
Do not refer to textbooks on English law or use ‘cheat sites’. Such use may result in a fail, or in the case of the latter a plagiarism referral.

Good luck,
Aidan
