The Q&A series offer the best preparation for tackling exam questions. Each book includes typical questions, bullet-pointed answer plans and suggested answers, author commentary and illustrative diagrams and flowcharts. This chapter presents sample exam questions about state and diplomatic immunity. The first two questions focus on the two competing theories of immunity — absolute and restrictive — requiring analysis of the leading domestic cases on this issue. Included is a problem question dealing with an employment situation. Although it is very common that employment matters can be brought before domestic courts even if another state is involved on the basis of restrictive immunity, there are important exceptions within the existing case law which might still lead to immunity being granted to the state involved. Finally, there is also a question on the topic of diplomatic immunity and the two Vienna Conventions on Diplomatic and Consular Relations.
