civil practice HD notes

64 pages

30,424 words




Throughout the semester, i wrote detailed paragraphs for each topic and subtopic, which will make it easier to answer the final exam as there is a short answer component.

These notes are also of great assistance for class participation marks and the civil practice speech in which using these notes i got 29/30 for class participation, which included the speech mark.

These notes are full scaffold answers, in which you can apply to whatever question is tested. These notes also cover the answers to the multiple choice questions. In using these notes for the exam, i managed to score a HD of 85 for the overall subject.
