Assignment Task
Part 1
You are required to deliver a 10 minute presentation supported by PowerPoint slides (maximum of 10) on the following topic:

Present the doctrine of separation of powers and discuss to what extent the Constitutional Reform Act 2005 has affected the operation of the principle within the UK constitution. (around 1000 words)

Part 2
Parliament has passed a new Act called the Hygiene Powers Act 2012 (a fictitious Act). Section 5 of the Act empowers the Local Authority to set hygiene standards for local restaurants, and they are also empowered to close any restaurant that in their opinion fails to meet „the set hygiene standards?. Section 6 of the Act gives the Local Authority discretion to set their own hygiene standards. Section 7 requires the Local Authority to give a restaurant found to be in breach of such standards 28 days to remedy the breach, and section 8 gives a right of appeal against any order of closure made by the Local Authority.
In April 2013, the Local Authority decided to appoint Cleanest Associates, a local hygiene consultancy company, and gave them the power to set the hygiene standards and to make recommendations to the council as to which restaurants are in breach of such standards and which should be closed.

In September 2013, Tapese Spanish restaurant received an unannounced visit from Cleanest Associates during closing hours and has been cited as being in breach of the hygiene standards and should close immediately.

Outline the function and procedure of a claim in judicial review. Examine whether the decision made by Cleanest Associates could be subject to an action in judicial review and on what grounds?

You MUST underpin your analysis and evaluation of the key issues with appropriate and wide ranging case law and ensure this is referenced using the OSCOLA system. The My Study Skills Area contains an OSCOLA Referencing Interactive Tutorial. You must use the OSCOLA referencing method in your assignment.
OSCOLA Referencing

What is Referencing

A referencing system gives credit to sources that you have used in your writing. They provide shortcuts to the authority which is used to support your arguments and ideas. A referencing system provides you with the essential means to attribute the work of other authors in your writing. This is essential at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. There are a variety of referencing systems, some of which are subject specific. The requirement of the LLB Common Law is that you use OSCOLA (Oxford Standard Citation of Legal Authorities)

Submission Instructions:
