Students are required to complete a law report case study of Junker v Hepburn [2010] NSWSC 88

http://www.austlii.edu.au/au/cases/nsw/NSWSC/2010/88.html

Introduction:
In this subject you will often consider common law cases and how they interpret and apply common law principles as well as how they interpret and apply statute law in the study of company law.

Students are required to do a 500 word analysis of the judgement, in this decision. The report should discuss:
a)    the major legal issues
b)    the relevant law relied on by the judge in making his decision
c)    the actual decision of the case.

In order to write an appropriate report students need to:

1. Read the case as many times as they feel necessary to be able to identify the key legal issues;
2. Pick out the key legal issues, the relevant law and the decision,
3. Prepare the report in their own words

Note in the case study there is no requirement to:

4. Consider other cases, use footnotes or prepare a bibliography; or
5. Do further reading outside the case study itself, unless the students wishes to do so.
Students should explain the finding of the court on the legal issues raised by the case. Students should also comment on the significance of case, if any, on the particular area of sport and the law that the case deals with.
