To assist in your review, it may help you to refer to the Guide to Reading and Analysing Case Law
which is available on Canvas (this is not a template to be used to structure your answer- it is
simply a tool to help you understand what you are reading if you are new to reading case law).
As a basic overview, you would need to make sure you explain the facts, what the issues were,
what the relevant law is, how the law was breached or alleged to be breached, any previous case
law considered, how the law was applied to the particular facts, the decision reached (and the
reasons for the decision). All case discussion and analysis should reference relevant paragraph
numbers in the judgment.
• Were there particular industry-specific concerns involved?
• Having regard to this case, what business advice would you give to other
manufacturers/suppliers who market their products with environmental claims to ensure they
are complying with the law? You should refer to other recent relevant case law examples.
• Do you think the current laws adequately deal with the issues raised in this case?
