What are the good and bad aspects of relying on precedent to decide current cases? Give an example of precedent that either was not followed in the past, or should not be followed in the future.

Include your name, student number, course number, course title and unit number on each page of your written assignment (this is for your protection in case your materials become separated).

Begin each written assignment by identifying the question number you are answering followed by the actual question itself (in bold type).

Use a standard essay format for responses to all questions (i.e. an introduction, middle
paragraphs and conclusion).

Responses must be submitted as a MS Word Document only, typed double-spaced, using a
standard font (i.e. Times New Roman) and 12 point type size.
