  • The Justification Of The Obiter Dicta Of Lambert

    The courts then formed a test called the test of proportionality. This test was originally created by Lord Hope in the case of Kebeline but it was amplified in Lambert and was explained further in Brown v Scott . The test holds three limbs which are, what the prosecution must prove in order for the burden to shift to the accused, what is the burden of the accused and what is the nature of the threat to society which the Act in question is trying to prevent. If the reverse burden given to the…

  • Evidence Law

    Judge: “Am I not to hear the truth?” Objecting Counsel: “No, Your Lordship is to hear the evidence. ” Evidence law is a mixture of principles, rules, guidelines and discretions. Jeremy Bentham legal theorist, stated it thus; ‘The field of evidence is no other than the field of knowledge’. The law of evidence is a critical subject for any lawyer or indeed party to a proceedings, who is concerned with investigation or the conduct of trials. The law of evidence is essentially about, the facts or…

  • Ambiguity Of Scots Law Essay

    here are two recognised standards of proof in Scots law. The first is beyond reasonable doubt, which is usually in criminal cases. The second is on the balance of probabilities which arises mostly in the civil context. This would suggest that the law on the standard of proof is straightforward. However ambiguity arises in the argument that there is or that there should be a third standard. Another important complication to this area of the law arises when considering civil circumstances that may…

  • Descartes Existence Of God

    take the first steps towards the 'unification of sciences '. However, in my opinion, it is not employed correctly, as Descartes, in reasoning for it, relies on rather unsound arguments. I will next present Descartes ' overall argument and how the proof of God 's existence interlocks with the other points of the argument. Then I will introduce the causal and ontological arguments. Thereafter,…

  • Hal's Disbelief In Catherine Proof

    therefore displaying how women are overlooked in the mathematical field due to gender bias. Hal implies that the guys at his math department could decode the proof faster than Catherine even though she is the author. Auburn uses Hals disbelief in Catherine proof to display how she is overlooked that she is the author of the proof. He overlooks the fact that it is Catherine proof therefore she is the best person to decode but his disbelief that it is her proof causes him to assert his male…

  • Value Of Knowledge In Real Life

    application into the real world. This idea is described by a real life experience I have had, learning Euclidean proofs in my previous Geometry class. A proof is a written account of the complete thought process that is used to reach a conclusion. Each step of the process is supported by a theorem, postulate or definition verifying why the step is possible. As I was learning how to complete proofs for a variety of different shapes, I found myself lacking the understanding of how they were going…

  • Proof In The Primary Classroom

    The mathematical content of key stage 1 and key stage 2 should involve proofs at levels appropriate for the children’s age (Mooney et al., 2012). Children at a higher age will be able to move from explanations of what they concluded, to then exploring the idea of proving a concept to be true (Haylock and Manning, 2014) showing the gap between key stage 1 and 2 on their understanding of proofs and how they derive at them. However, proof involves complicated methods that pupils of primary and…

  • Descartes: A Priori Proof Of God's Existence

    his Meditations on First Philosophy, René Descartes offers both an a priori and an a posteriori proof of God’s existence. Until Immanuel Kant introduced his epistemology—the notion of a priori synthetic judgments—Descartes’ a priori proof was generally considered purely demonstrative and analytic. However, analyzing Descartes using Kant’s epistemological foundations, reveals that Descartes’ a priori proof was both a priori and synthetic. Specifically, the Cartesian concept of clear and distinct…
