You'd get marks for genocide but not apartheid. It's not an international crime, it's a set of domestic policies

Just checked and Heinemann(sp?) Legal Studies book on pg 108 has both of them as types of international crime.

I said that the two types of international crimes are those that occur within no clear-cut jurisdiction and those that are in a jurisdiction but have elements that are of international concern.

Eg for the first kind: piracy, aircraft highjacking.
Eg for the second kind: genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes.

I wrote
"Crimes against humanity - genocide e.g. nazi extermination of the jews"
"War crimes - e.g. invasion of other countries or attacks without declaring war"

i did these too and my depty (one of the guys who rote the text book) said that they were right so yay = >

i loved the last question, suited me perfectly. ended up writing bout new dna testing, double jeopardy, anti-terror laws and majority verdicts - loved it!

sentencing was ok pretty simple but good

the crime section was so weird without a scenario.. completely not what i was expecting. the current criminal justice issue was what we had in the trials and i was not expecting it to be in the HSC! my criminal justice issue was the decriminalisation of cannabis... i think the examiner is going to think i am a massive stoner!:eek:
it was an unusual section, but the questions weren't too bad

What the hell was with that Types of Crime question? Could it have been phrased any worse? It's like asking "Name two types of shirts" "Short and long sleeved." "WRONG! Red and Blue!".
I better get at least two marks because when I'm asked two types of crimes I automatically think of two actual types, not two categories. Stupid question.

Yep...of you go back and look at all the other past papers...well, it is like they almost completely changed the format of this one! Was really strange...the Crime section sucked, but I guess it is fairly easy to pull anything out of the air when it comes to Legal :confused: Anywayz, I think I mentioned Transnational crime e.g. drug trading, and then I talked about a crime committed outside a national jurisdiction e.g. plane hijacking...am not sure, but my notes say that is around about...you reckon they wanted two of the three types of international crime...or a more specific or general answer...

All this quessing is so completely frustrating!:headbang:

I thought the crime section was pretty good, but I had trouble with the wuestion "discussing the role of the sentencing process in balancing the interests of the community with the rights of the offender". I mentioned briefly on how mitigating and aggravating factors affect ther decision. I gave example of how the interests of the comunity has changed sentencing such as the Skaf case, and a couple of sentences on how judicial discretion is important.

What did you all write?

Once again, this is a very easy paper compared to last year (though it may seem like this because i've done units related to crime/criminology at university).. but at least you had a question that makes sense. Our question last year was on something that we weren't even taught!
