Additional Comments from Second marker or External Examiner (if required) :















Answer one question only

All questions carry equal marks






‘When the prospects of successful conviction under CMCHA are remote and the consequences for an offender are just as great financially and reputationally when convicted under HSWA, is there therefore some merit in thinking that the corporate manslaughter regime is now officially redundant?’

www.britsafe.org. 25th March 2020


Outline your country’s legal provision for corporate manslaughter. With reference to recent events, critically assess how effective these provisions are in practice.


(50 Marks)






‘There is an ongoing debate over whether or not insider dealing should be illegal. In part, this is because most insider trading is not detected. However, it’s also because there is some question over whether insider trading is detrimental to any party in a legal sense.’ www.stpaulschambers.com; 11th March, 2020


Critically analyse your country’s approach in imposing criminal sanctions in deterring insider dealing. Do you consider the use of legal sanctions in this area to be necessary?

  1. You must use legal authority to support your answer.




Megabyte Ltd is a small software development company that is managed by Peter. Recently Peter was showing some prospective investors around the company premises. One of these investors left his wallet in the staff toilets where it was picked up by David, an employee of Megabyte. David looked in the wallet and found an exclusive gym membership card – he then dropped the wallet into the wastebin.


David later used the gym membership card to obtain a full training session which would have normally cost £100. When David was leaving the gym he dropped the membership card off at the reception desk.


  1. 1. With reference to the above scenario, consider whether David has committed: –


  1. A. Theft.


  1. Fraud

(30 marks)


  1. Applying some of the theories of risk management, how could Peter ensure such an event does not occur in the future?

Level 5


Grading & Marking Criteria for BA Programmes
80 + Excellent work of substantial merit which is original in content or approach allowing a novel perspective, based on a broad range of literature.
70 – 79 Work which is clearly articulated and well substantiated, based on substantial reading, and demonstrates a good grasp of the concepts, methodology and content appropriate to the subject and to the assessed task. There is clear evidence of originality and an ability to synthesise material effectively.
60 – 69 Work which demonstrates a very good level of understanding of the concepts, methodology and content appropriate to the subject and which draws on a good range of referenced sources. There is clear evidence of judgement in selecting, ordering and analysing content. The work demonstrates some ability to synthesise material and to construct responses which may offer some occasional originality.
50 – 59 Work derived from a good basis of reading and which demonstrates a grasp of relevant key concepts and an ability to structure and organise material. The performance may be rather routine but the work will be accurate, clearly written and include some analysis. There will be no serious omissions or irrelevancies.
40 – 49 Competent and suitably organised work which demonstrates a reasonable level of understanding with minimal analysis and interpretation. It covers the basic subject matter adequately but is too descriptive and insufficiently analytical. There may be some misunderstanding of key concepts and limitations in the ability to select relevant material so that the work may be flawed by some omissions and irrelevancies. There will be some evidence of appropriate reading.
30 – 39 Work lacks evidence of knowledge relevant to the topic and/or significantly misuses terminology. There is either no evidence of literature being consulted or irrelevant to the assignment set. Inaccurate or inappropriate choice of theory. Unsubstantiated/invalid conclusions based on anecdote and generalisation only, or no conclusions at all. Lacks critical thought and reference to theory.
  0 – 29 Insufficient level of understanding and knowledge base unacceptably weak. No evidence of logical structure and poorly presented. Referencing is unsystematic or absent.
