LA 102 Assignment 2 Due: Wednesday 12 May Worth: 20% Question 1 (units 6 & 7) 3 marks This question tested your skills in searching the internet, as well as your skills in referencing. By doing this question you should appreciate that a style guide can require you to cite the same case differently, depending upon where it was found. You should also be developing initiative in your searching strategies – the search engine on the Pacific law materials is not overly reliable, so you have to think of other strategies to find the information. Some of these are mentioned in the notes below. Find the following cases on the Pacific Law materials. Provide the citation and the URL for each one. 1. Kauongo v R [1977] GILR 55 - M/Kauongo_v_R.html (Accessed 7 May 2004) The correct answer to number 1 is to provide the citation for where it is found in a law report, as well as the URL and access date. This was a trick question – although the case is found online, it is not an unreported judgment, and you should not reference it as an unreported judgment. If a case has been published in an official law report somewhere you should ALWAYS provide this citation. You may also want to give an alterative citation – like here where you provide the official citation, as well as an internet address where the case can be found. 2. Hunika v Harohau (Unreported, High Court of Solomon Islands, Civil Case 047 of 1998, 1 September 1999) - L/Hunika_v_Harohau.html (Accessed 7 May 2004) You must be careful with the date – provide the date of judgment, NOT the date of hearing. If you had trouble finding this case in the Pacific law material, what you could do would be to find it in PACLII, then go back to the Pacific law material and, using your new found knowledge of the court that the case was decided in and its file number, locate it on the Pacific law materials. 3. Talpoa v Tasul (Unreported, Supreme Court of Vanuatu, Civil Case 30 of 2000, 1 June 2001) (Accessed 7 May 2004) Now find the same cases on PACLII and provide the citation for each one using the PACLII style. 4. Kauongo v R [1977] GILR 55; [1977] KIGIHC 9 - paclii/disp.pl/ki/cases/KIGIHC/1977/9.html?query=%7e+kauongo (Accessed 7 May 2004) This is a tricky one to reference. As discussed above, you should provide the official citation. You should also provide the URL where it can be located. Because the PACLII citation is a semi official citation I have also chosen to include that. Sometimes cases are published in more than one place – if you look in some textbooks, you will see that authors usually list the alternative citations where cases can be found.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
