Paper D - Legal advice


Paper D consists of two parts. In Part I, 5-10 shorter legal questions have to be answered (in recent years more 5 than 10). Part II is presented as one large and complex case with a few questions that require a longer answer and a detailed analysis of the legal situation. 40 marks are available for Part I, 60 for Part II.

Before 2013, Part I and Part II were completely separated papers (D I and D II), each with a dedicated time slot. Since 2013, candidates are free to choose what part to work when. For the statistics, this change doesn't really matter. There still are 100 marks in total and you need 50 to pass.
