I am struggling to comprehend the difference between Reversing and Overruling, I saw you explained overruling the comments already but I was wondering what make it distinct to reversing when both decisions are altered by higher court because the judges think the existing precedent by lower court is not a right precedent..? I am actually lost between the same case and diff case, please help me out. Thanks.

One is changing the decision of the inferior Court in the same case
The other changes the precedent established in an earlier case when considering a later similar set of circumstances

Thank you sir.

First of all thanks helping us, it really means a lot sir, I was just wondering is it enough just to watch the concerned vedios and lectures concluded in this site, to prepare us for official ACCA exam or you are recommending other related lectures. Equally important, do your team providing online tuition for ACCA or not. I am new member of this site that’s why I’m asking this.

Firstly, welcome to the OpenTuition family – it’s good to have you with us
We all, without exception, insist that you acquire an up to date revision kit from one of the approved publishers – Kaplan or BPP
(If you choose to buy a BPP kit, you can take advantage of the 20% discount available if you buy through the OpenTuition site – just click on the yellow box on this page and follow the instructions)
Hours and hours of endless question practice from a revision kit. Yes, read the notes (2 hours from start to finish)
Yes, watch the videos, two and maybe three times
But the key is question practice from a revision kit
And, whenever you come across a word, phrase, sentence, answer that you don’t understand, post again on the Ask ACCA Tutor page and I shall get back to you

I’m having a difficult time distinguishing between Reversing and Overruling. I re-watched the bit in the video where you spoke of them multiple times but didn’t really get it.
Can you rephrase it and make it a tad bit simpler to comprehend?
Cheers mate, Faeq

The way I understand it is if a ruling was made on a case and then this case went to a higher court as a matter of appeal. If the higher court disagreed with the outcome they could reverse the decision on this case.
However if a similar case was brought to a higher court the judges in the case could rule differently to the ratio and not be binded by decision in the lower court of the similar case. In doing so they would overrule the previous decision and not accept the previous precedent created.
My understanding could be incorrect though.

Ok, got it. Thnxs

I enjoyed watching this video. It was very interesting more so with the example of superman. But please I would like to know what does the word “overrule” mean in the context of law and during court hearing. Is it implying that the decision taken is turned down or rejected. Thanks.

“Overrule” is where a (superior) Court considers an earlier decision from an (inferior) Court and decides that that earlier decision is incorrect and therefore should no longer be considered to be a precedent

Thanks for the clarification. I got it!

I am looking to sit this CBE on September 14th 2019. Will this information be suitable for this exam or is there a change in the syllabus from September 2019 to August 2020?
Thanks for your help!
June 20, 2019 at 8:35 pm
There is a relatively small change to the syllabus effective from 1 September but the free course notes on this site are already updated for that change
FYI the change relates to the area of money laundering and specifically how to detect, prevent and identify situations where there is the potential for money laundering

Thanks a lot! Fantastic help as always.

You’re very welcome

Thanks, as I didn’t know how to pronounce the word Decidendi.
June 16, 2019 at 4:49 am
You’re welcome … but I don’t think that you needed to concern yourself over that. I can’t see haw the pronunciation of a word could be examined in an ACCA Law examination!
Maybe a 1 mark question?
“Which is the correct pronunciation of the word ‘decidendi’ in the Latin expression ‘ratio decidendi’?”
What do you think? Any chance that that could come up?
December 12, 2018 at 6:54 pm
Thank you very, this is so helpful. Thanks.

You’re very welcome 🙂
