How to deal with the legal and criminal class writing exam

A large class of IELTS essay can be divided into educational, social, technology, government policies, mass media, law and crime topics such six categories, which generally reflected the students most fear, the feeling was undoubtedly the subject of the most impossible to start types of questions of law and crime. As of now (December 22, 2008), in 08 years January 12, August 16 and October 11 there were legal examination, the subject of crime.Although the relative frequency of state title is not very frequent, but if students are not pro forma for such a reasonable and effective targeted topic summary and review, I believe that what is difficult to obtain in writing the ideal scores ( participated in the Long House, Jinan several exam scores of students in general are not very good.) A general review of the market a large number of IELTS writing guide, duck Tips These pro forma for different levels and different levels of students and edited books in IELTS, it is difficult to see such practice for the purpose of criminal review some of the teaching and guidance. In this thesis, I will law and crime, some of the common topics covered by everyone from the content analysis of each language, or want to duck IELTS teachers were able to benefit from it.
First, it should have the death penalty? – Can capital punishment (death penalty) ever be justified?

This topic can be said that this category of crime comes to legal topics, the most frequently mentioned problem. IELTS candidates for most Chinese, especially high school students, college students, if not carefully prepared in advance, then I am afraid of the subject can only be dumbfounded. On this topic, which can be roughly divided into several sub-arguments to expand:

Arguments against capital punishment:

The death penalty is a punishment of criminals, and not be able to save lives of victims of crime, or compensation for the harm they suffered
Capital punishment, which even though manages to bring the criminals to justice, could by no means compensate for physical, mental and psychological sufferings inflicted on victims, or in some extreme cases, bring back their lives.

No matter how much a person who commits an error, the right to deprive others of their lives. (Human Rights)
It is entirely unjustified to deprive one of his / her rights to live regardless of how insanely severe and cruel the offenses he / she has committed are. (This subject matter has boiled to the controversial issue of human rights)

Treatment of the bodies of executed prisoners (whether it can be used for organ transplantation, etc.) will be a very controversial moral issues.
How the body of the deceased criminal is going to be disposed of (used for organ transplant, for instance) will be bound to raise grave both ethical and social implications.

Arguments for capital punishment:

If the death row have not been the most severe punishment, then it is unfair to the victims.
It would be only fair for the victims if the criminals are subject to the greatest fear of all-death.

If the abolition of the death penalty, then a lot of potential criminals will not scruple to make some of the most terrible crimes.

Arguments for prison:

Prison education or job training, compared with a strong deterrent effect, which can effectively inhibit the rising crime rate.
In stark contrast to placing criminals on educational courses or employment retraining, prisons appeared more effective in deterring potential, would-be wrongdoers from committing crimes, thus drastically decreasing the likelihood of rising crime rate.

Prison is more of a punishment on criminals, so to avoid repeating them.
Being locked up behind the bars is a punitive measure imposed on criminals who are highly unlikely to turn into a recidivist in consideration of their fear of setting foot into jails ever again.

Criminals in prison is surrounded by a group of prisoners, which is the rehabilitation of offenders is not good, but is a bad influence. Allow offenders to receive education in a positive environment, aware of the real right and wrong.
“Captivity of negativity” is a terminology intended to describe the destructive, rather than constructive impact on criminals who are locked up in prison, surrounded by people who probably have committed even more serious charges. Education serves to correct any misconception or eliminate twisted thoughts they have by immersing them in a positive environment.

Most offenders are often no cultural knowledge and life skills, is often difficult to find work after release. Education and job training to allow them to later in life to survive on their own, and not because there is no source of income once again go astray.
A significant proportion of criminals are sadly illiterate without adequate fundamental knowledge and survival skills and it wouldn’t be easy for them to find a decent job after being released from the jail. With convenient access to education and job retraining, they are able to survive by themselves, greatly reducing the chance of becoming a recidivist in times when they are financially challenged.

Third, individual choices conflict with the legal community – Should individual choices interfere with the society that is based on rules and laws

This is the October 11, 2008 exam, This question is focused on the core project is a contradiction. That the society is always based on regulations and laws, and sometimes the interests of society and personal choice are often contradictory. When this conflict occurs, which should be the first place? Why? After the exam, I have talked to several students discussed in the exam, many students reflected that the subject is not difficult, but just do not know where to start. There is a student directly to the example of a we can not just kill, because it is against the law of things one such example. In fact, this subject is most critical is two things: how well the scope of the law is to find a suitable legal and personal choice with such a conflict point. I am on this subject and content of the understanding of paragraph structure is as follows:

This is mainly because of conflict of laws and regulations arising from the public and national interests, and personal interests of the vast majority of cases are on personal point of view the problem. An environment conducive to personal problems caused to other people if unnecessary damage, it should not be allowed.
The conflict of public interest and personal interest accounts largely for the issue of the extent to which is the interference of personal choices justified with the society governed by rules and laws.

Here we can cite an example, on IP (Intellectual Property Rights). Many people will go online to download free movies, music and books. The reason for this is genuine (authentic copy) relatively too expensive for Chinese consumers. Although this seems reasonable, most people will benefit, but it also hurt the entertainment stars (celebrities) and the record company’s interest, so this time should be the fundamental law, to prevent such acts.

Conversely, we can not deny the individual should be the law in particular cases, the personal choice to give proper
On the other hand, rules and laws should give in to personal choices in some special cases.

For example, heart attack drove the people rushed to the hospital. While that may be the way the driver ran a red light (run red lights), will cause some traffic disruption, or even that there is the possibility of a traffic accident. But such an act I think it should be understood (tolerated). This is for outside the law, but it is reasonable. Of course, this law is limited concessions, often indeed difficult to judge. So, whether legal or personal choice, and ultimately from the overall interests should be.

These are my three typical criminal laws explain the subject class, hoping that teachers have in the future of the criminal law in the class help to explain the subject, but also hope to help the candidates in a tight IELTS are pro forma.
