Essay Instructions: BUSINESS LAW


Peter was a shareholder in Horizon plc. He recently saw a financial statement prepared by Bumble & Co, which showed that Horizon was making a profit of £10 million. All of Horizon’s directors and shareholders had received a copy of this information. As Horizon were so profitable, he decided to buy another 10,000 shares in the company.

Peter showed the financial statement to Alison who was not currently a shareholder in Horizon. She decided it would be good to invest in the company and purchased 200 Horizon shares.

While driving home from visiting Alison Peter suffered a car accident. A large pothole opened in the road along which he was driving causing the car to crash and Peter was injured. The road was in a poor state of repair and had not been maintained for a long time as the local council (who were responsible for maintaining the roads) had made financial cutbacks. Peter had to spend some time in hospital and lost earnings as a result of being off from work.

It has recently been revealed that Bumble’s audit of Horizon’s accounts had been poorly prepared and was very inaccurate. Horizon was actually making a small loss.
When this news was revealed the value of Horizon’s shares fell sharply causing large losses to shareholders including Peter and Alison.

Peter and Alison blame Bumble’s accounts for their losses and would both like to claim compensation from Bumble for their losses.

Peter would also like to claim compensation from the local council for the car accident he suffered and for the lost earnings for the time that he was off from work.

Critically discuss how the law of negligence might be applied:
(i) To Peter’s claim against Bumble & Co
(ii) To Alison’s claim against Bumble & Co
(iii) To Peter’s claim against the local council

Format of answer and citation of sources used

1. Cite cases as follows: Smith v Patel (1968). Parties’ names should be italicised or underlined. If in doubt check handouts or the textbooks.

2. Use cases (i) to support a proposition of law, or (ii) to illustrate a point. Use as appropriate when stating and applying the law (for example by comparing the facts with the question to decide if the facts fall within or outside of the case).

eg (i) ‘A party may be fixed with notice of an exclusion clause by a regular course of previous dealings between the parties: Spurling v Bradshaw (1956)’.

eg (ii) ‘An advertisement can amount to an offer. In Carlill v Carbolic Smoke Ball Co (1892) an advertisement offered a £100 reward for anyone who used their smoke ball and contracted ’flu. In addition, the Smoke Ball Company stated that it had deposited £1000 in the bank “to show our sincerity in the matter”. The Court of Appeal held that the reward, combined with the bank deposit, showed a clear intention by the Smoke Ball Company to be bound by the terms of the advert, and so the advert constituted an offer.’

3. Write in essay, not report, style. Use paragraphs. Avoid sub-headings.

4. Cite original sources where possible. So, if quoting from a statute, or a case, do not cite the textbook in which you saw that quote. Simply cite the statute or case (which you will find in the textbooks). Remember the University’s plagiarism policy.

5. Don’t forget the technique for the problem (or ‘case-study’) questions (see seminar one): (i) identify the issues. (Start by stating who is suing whom and for what. Then select the likely contestable elements in your cause(s) of action); (ii) state the relevant law for each of these issues; (iii) subject those issues to that law (or ‘apply the law’); (iv) conclude. Note, if the facts are vague, then speculate, eg ‘If it were the case that ... then Jones v Patel would apply because .....’ You may go further and suggest alternative outcomes: ‘On the other hand if....’

6 A bibliography of sources used must be listed at the end of the answer.
