Unlike in criminal law practice, the facts in a legal problem question are frozen.
In your answer, you should not dispute unequivocal facts.
There may be ambiguous facts in a problem question. Ambiguities in the facts should be identified and resolved.
You may need to re-order the facts by drafting a chronology.
There may be irrelevant facts in a problem question. Facts are irrelevant when they do not affect the defendant's legal position and they do not give rise to any criminal law issue.
