I am after a little bit of advice please. In completing my employment law assignment, when it comes to citing case law is it acceptable to reference the case in the body of the assignment without necessarily summarising the case (using Harvard referencing)? I have a few where I have provided a short summary but quite frankly, with a limited word counts of 240 word per assessment criteria (each learning outcome has either 2 or 3 assessment criteria) providing more than just a reference is proving impossible!!
Also, is referencing one case per learning outcome sufficient or would I need to cite 1 for each assessment criteria? Again, the word count is very limiting!
