Apply the rules to the problem
Application, or analysis or argument, is the most important, and the longest, part of your answer. It involves applying the rules to the facts of the problem or question.
This is where you state your evidence and explain how you will arrive at your conclusion. Use relevant precedent cases, legislation, or statements of legal principles to support your answer.
Apply or distinguish the relevant case authority, with consideration of how the facts are similar or different to those in the cases.
You should consider both sides of the dispute and address counter-arguments where appropriate. If applicable, include discussion of cases that are contrary to your conclusion. Focus on any contentious issues. Give an indication of the weight of the arguments when setting out counter arguments (e.g. strong, good, poor, weak).
Order the issues in a sensible and effective way to lead the reader to your conclusion.
