Choose an infomercial (does not matter what infomercial) and describe the following:

- Was the infomercial immediately eye-catching?
- What made you watch the entire presentation?
- Would you end up purchasing this product because of what the infomercial had to say about it?
other major difference between statute law and common law is how they are amended. Common law can be amended by passing a new statute as shown in case R v R (1991). Here the criminal justice and public order act 1994 was passed in order to make it illegal for a husband to rape his wife. Furthermore, common law can also be amended by the courts. This can happen if a court which has a higher ranking overturns a previous decision made by a lower court then the legal precedent is no longer binding recently shown in Lee (Respondent) V Ashers Baking Company Ltd and others (Appellants) (Northern Ireland). On the other hand, statute law cannot be amended case law which makes it more powerful than case law. Instead if one wishes to amend statute law a separate statute must be passed by going through parliament. An example of this is how the European communities finance act amended 2001 was repealed by the European communities’ finance act (2008). One final difference between statute law and common law is how it is applied and implemented. Common law is only applied when looking at specific cases and thus is reactive to any situation that may arise. This means that the people who form common law (the judges) cannot go out of their way in order to form new common law. Common law often entails what decision should be made when faced with a certain issue. In contrast, statute law involves the rules that residents or organisation within the UK should follow. Furthermore, statute law is proactive, this means that the makers of statute law (Parliament) can go out of their way in order to create new statute law. A consequence of this is that statute law can be made on any issue as shown in Laser misuse (vehicles) Act (2018). This gives it significantly more power than common law. In conclusion statute power is different to common law in a number of different ways in terms of the power it has, how they are formed, how they are amended and how they are applied.
