Chapter

This chapter is a short but important chapter. It provides an overview of the Single Family Court, which was created in April 2014. This is a huge change from when there used to be two family courts, magistrates’ and county court. It summarizes the effects of the Single Family Court and outlines who is involved in the judicial process within the new structure. It discusses how the allocation of cases within the Single Family Court are done by ‘gatekeepers’ and the new points of entry for cases. It outlines that the rules for allocation can be found in the Family Court (Composition and Distribution of Business) Rules 2014.

Each Concentrate revision guide is packed with essential information, key cases, revision tips, exam Q&As, and more. Concentrates show you what to expect in a law exam, what examiners are looking for, and how to achieve extra marks. This chapter examines the defences of consent; self-defence (which includes using reasonable force in the defence of oneself, defence of others, of property, and the prevention of crime); and duress (which consists of being compelled to commit a crime to avoid death or serious harm in a situation of immediacy where there is no route of escape). Duress is an excusatory defence; consent and self-defence are justificatory defences. If the defence of necessity does exist separately to the defence of duress, it is a justificatory defence.
