Thank you so much for the lectures. They’re really easy to follow. Just one thing I’m unsure of. Who takes LW (ENG) and who takes LW (GLO)?

Olivia, it’s a free choice. As you may imagine, English law is heavily orientated towards the … law in England whereas Global law is a more general appreciation of international trade, rules and regulations
The only major element that students need to consider when making their choice is whether or not it is their intention / hope / aspiration to live in the UK and obtain a practicing certificate
If that is their ambition, that certificate will be issued only to those qualified ACCAs that have passed the English law variant (also the UK tax paper and the UK advanced auditing paper)
If there is nowhere in your mind that you might possibly foresee yourself as a practicing accountant / auditor in the UK, then your selection is based purely on what you would like to know. Do you want the intricacies (and, in my opinion, the sheer fun!) of English contract law or would you prefer a more general understanding of the impact of the United Nations on international law
Subject to any local requirements, success in English law is just one more step to the ACCA qualification and that, in itself, is substantially recognised throughout the World (local requirements such as having to pass USA Law and Tax papers in order to practice in the USA)
But equally, success in the Global variant of the law paper is also recognised … subject to local requirements … like having to pass the English law variant and the UK tax paper!
If it were me that was facing this decision, I would opt for the English variant but there’s a strong personal influence there in that I am English!
I’m not sure that that has helped but I believe that it answers your question

Hello Sir. For the upcoming exams, can we assume that the supreme court is the highest in the hierarchy post brexit? Also, are county court and crown court on the same level below the high court in the hierarchy? Thank you.

I really am not sure about the position post Brexit. However, given that the UK population has mindlessly voted to leave the only viable opposition to the Trump and his bleach Covid cure, it would seem to me that we can realistically assume that the Supreme Court is the final authority in matters of UK law

Thank you Sir. Also, are county court and crown court on the same level below the high court in the hierarchy?

Yes, but with completely different areas of jurisdiction
The one is concerned with civil matters whereas the other is involved with criminal cases

What is the difference between house of lords and supreme court what do they do?

The supreme Court is the new title of the previous title for the highest Court in the UK. It used to be called ‘The House of Lords’ … but that cause confusion with the upper chamber in the Houses of Parliament – the House of Lords
So the title of the highest Court was changed to The Supreme Court

Hi, is the crown court the same as magistrate court? i use the study text provided to me by Kaplan…
July 9, 2019 at 4:14 pm
No, the Crown Court is NOT the same at the Magistrates Court

My comment is the same as that made by @emanwahied

I’m sure that I answered this question 2days ago!
The lecture and the notes are showing the same point but from different perspectives
The notes say that the C of A IS bound by itself, unless …
… and the notes give 3 situations where the C of A is not bound by its previous decisions
The lecture says that the C of A is NOT bound by itself where those three situations exist
It’s a matter of the direction from which one approaches the matter … it’s safe to say that the C of A is (sometimes) bound by its previous decisions and is (sometimes) not bound by those previous decisions

Sir, could you please review what you said in the 6:11 minute of the video. You said Court of Appeal is not bound by itself, but the notes shows otherwise.
