CONTRIBUTION TO FINAL MARK
1. This assignment is worth 35% and is compulsory.
2. The word limit for this assignment is 4,000 words with a 10% tolerance. There are
important reasons for imposing and enforcing word limits; they are something lawyers
have to grapple with in practice. For example, arguments for special leave to the High
Court must not exceed 10 pages (responses to those applications must not exceed 5
pages) and must adhere to formatting requirements. Oral arguments for special leave to
appeal to the High Court must not exceed 20 minutes.
3. More importantly, there is an important skill associated with conveying your arguments
with brevity. It is often harder to be brief than verbose when formulating an argument,
but working to achieve the former will normally produce a better result; as with most
things, quality is more important than quantity!
