Does anyone know how to refer Dutch case law into footnotes according to OSCOLA? I only came this far: [1954] HR 378 NJ But not sure whether this is OSCOLA, since the oxford handbook only deals with UK and international case law - this is the quick guide - this is the full guide. I always use these, much better and straight-forward explained than in the book we used for skills. This is what Oscola says: "Cite cases from other jurisdictions as they are cited in their own jurisdiction, but with minimal punctuation. If the name of the law report series cited does not itself indicate the court, and the identity of the court is not obvious from the context, you should also give this in either full or short form in brackets at the end of the citation. When citing a decision of the highest court of a US state, the abbreviation of the name of the state suffices." page 32 of the Full Guide

Cc: If someone abandons him in a helpless situation although he has him in custody and thereby exposes him to a danger of death. Cd: If someone abandons him in a helpless situation although he has him in custody and thereby exposes him to a serious health damage. two separate conditions

what is the conclusion of the case? are the boys | boardmembers liable?
All the boys and board members are liable for ella’s death. But should we also see if they are liable for celia’s psychic illness, because they were only arrested when ella was found and earlier not for celia?...
do we need to identify only 1 fallacy or all 3 in the case, if only 1 how do we choose which one?

how did you guys add the subsections 2 and 3 to subsection 1? are you allowed to just add that with the others or not? can someone write down how they wrote it in their assignment?
what fallacy of the text did you guys use and what was the correct fallacy to apply? i heard a lot about tu queqou but for which sentence in the text did you guys use that for?
also are you guys doing section 1 or section 2 for art 25
Do we need to write why we think this is the main legal issue and to apply the fallacy to the text or it’s sufficient just to state it?
