Sample Essay type questions
Note : Essay type questions have been dropped for AILET PG 2019

2. H. L. A. Hart as positivist views that application of laws raises several complications in the real world. He said every word of law has “fuzzy edges”. He was of the view the courts must exercise discretion deciding on the basis of extra legal considerations. Ronald Dworkin through his work “The Model of Rules” (1977) responded to this issue and took a different stand. Comment and critically sift these two competing and differing stands of the two eminent jurists and develop your own arguments as well.
3. Explain the doctrine of frustration of contract with reference to Krelt V. Henry (1903). Also analyse, in detail, the various theories of frustration with the help of leading cases.
4. How do you approach the two seemingly conflicting propositions :
(i) It is undesirable that a young person who commits an offence and who genuinely does not know that he is doing something seriously wrong should suffer the operation of the criminal law. But is a blanket presumption such as it presently exists in England and Wales, the best way to achieve protection for such a person.
