Last updated 17 May 2021
This 20-30 minute activity on civil and criminal law is ideal as an induction or taster activity for budding A-Level and/or BTEC Law students.
In this activity, students are challenged with distinguishing between civil law acts and criminal law acts, as well as the severity of cases.
Presented with a series of fictitious cases, It is their task to decide whether each case study is a civil offence or a criminal offence and then to place it in hierarchical format dependant on the seriousness of the case.
