A:  I think that it is asking you do both and that maybe you should state if you agree/disagree with the statement coupled with the reasons for your decision. Thanks, I kind of had the feeling that that was the case, i just have so many notes and trying to get them all together to make some sense on paper is driving me mad!! I''m sure I''ll get there in the end. The question presupposes that you are a good student and that therefore, you already know and understand how law is made.
