Students are reminded of University Regulations for its awards. In the context of hand-in deadlines for assessed coursework, Regulation E1.5 (Sept 09) states that if a student fails to submit assessed work by the agreed submission date (after allowing for any extensions that might have been granted), the Course Assessment Board will record a mark of zero, leading to failure in the assignment, unless the Board is satisfied that there are good grounds for treating the student differently. E1.6 focuses on extenuating circumstances and procedure.
In the context of academic misconduct, the University’s regulations are contained in Section 4 of the Students’ Handbook of Regulations (Sept 09). These give details of what constitutes plagiarism and the penalties for plagiarism.

Simon did not have a legal binding contract with Huddersford Bookshop because he did not have all the essential elements of having a legal binding contract. A legal binding contract is “an agreement between two parties by which both are bound in law” (Martin & Turner).
One of the essential elements of having a legal binding contract is an agreement which is an “offer and acceptance of definite terms” (Lucy Jones, page 87, 2011). Simon sent a letter on the 4th of April and offered to pay £500 which is his offer, John read the letter on the 6th of April and discussed the offer with Ben his business partner, they both agreed but no consideration was taken place from John and Bens side to Simon, “consideration is a promise to do something in return for a similar promise” (Lucy Jones, 2011, Page 87) because they both acknowledged Simon’s offer and intended to reply to Simons offer, but failed to reply to Simon’s letter(offer).
However the offer made to John and Ben from Simon was a legal and clear offer which has to be a definite statement of terms which is capable of acceptance for example the case Gurthing v Lynn(1831) states that the claimant agreed to purchase a horse from the defendant for £63 and agreed to pay a further £5 if the horse was lucky” but the promise made to pay the extra £5 was too vague and resulted in the offer not being clear and valid. However the offer made to John and Ben is clear so the offer is a valid offer as Simon saw the book in the catalogue and made an offer in the form of a letter...
