Legal Reasoning: The Legal Reasoning section of Mock 11 was of a reasonably difficult level.
As all the questions were reasoning based, the section was lengthy and quite time consuming. It required quick reading and fast understanding of the questions by the students.
Moreover, almost all the questions were multiple principle based which added to the difficulty and understanding of the students.
The section was dominated by questions from Law of torts. Apart from that, the paper had questions from most of the topics like Criminal Law, Constitutional Law, Law of Contracts, International Law, Family Law, Intellectual Property law and General Principles of Law; making it a good set for practice.
Question 154-157: The set of questions is based on the law of Constitution wherein there are four principles and a long set of facts.
As per the second principle, Bharat Petroleum Limited is a government undertaking as its control lies in the hands of the state. As per Principle 1, every person has the fundamental right to move the Supreme Court and the High Court under Writ jurisdiction, therefore, BPL cannot challenge the jurisdiction of Supreme Court.
The fundamental right of trade and business is provided in Principle 4 of the question which states that “All citizens have the …….of India” and in the present case, the fundamental right of freedom and of trade and business is guaranteed to citizens and not persons, BPL being a non-natural person here.
The decision of BPL is violative of right to Equality as this right is available to all persons and not just citizens. Here, the eligibility criteria was changed to suit only one company.
Question 169-172: It is one of the difficult and lengthy questions of the paper consisting of 4 principles on criminal law. The first principle deals with Mischief, the second principle defines Criminal Misappropriation, the third principle defines criminal breach of trust and the last principle states theft and its essentials.
B, who is A’s servant is not guilty of committing mischief because he lacked the required intention essential for the act to qualify as an offence. D, who was another servant of A will not be guilty of committing theft as he merely made up his mind to take the urn out of the possession but did not do anything. W.r.t question 171, B is not guilty of committing any crime mentioned in the principles, hence the answer would be (d). In ques 172, had B kept the urn to himself and sold it to C, he would have committed the crime of theft because he would have taken it out from the possession of A, without his consent and dishonest intention.
Question 186-190: This set of questions is a must attempt one. Although it looks very long, with 5 Principles on Constitutional Law, but the principles are very simple and followed by 5 questions. The facts are also not long making it a scoring question.
Ques 186 – We can derive option (B) in the first go from Principle 4.
Ques 187- The answer to this question is also derived from Principle 4. The State is not aiding the minority institution and hence cannot control the teachings. Hence, (C) is the answer.
Ques 188- The admission of the students in the college is at the discretion of the college as it is a minority institution and cannot be regulated by State as it is not being funded by State.
Ques 189 – By banning the payment of capitation fee, the State is just maintaining the educational character of the institution.
Ques 190 – Again, the answer can be derived out of Principle 4, being an unaided minority institution, the college does not have to implement the reservation policy.
