You have a presentation topic - you have either chosen one or been given one - and are now ready to begin your preparation. Where do you start? As with the other forms of assessment, the key is structure, so the first thing that needs doing is to look at where you can develop a structure from. Your lecture notes or textbook, or both, will give you the basic information you need to start. What are the most important elements to the topic? What cases have examined these elements and in what context? Having identified which element of the topic you wish to concentrate on, you can then decide which case or journal article will form the basis of your presentation. What is vital here is not to choose blockbuster cases: for example, Re A (Children)  EWCA Civ 254, the case of the conjoined twins, is a popular case with students but is impossible as a basis for presentation because it is 81 pages long. One small aspect of it may be possible but the whole thing is not.
