Abstract

Complete Criminal Law offers a student-centred approach to the criminal law syllabus. Clear explanation of general legal principles is combined with fully integrated extracts from the leading cases and a wide range of academic materials. This text aims to engage the reader in an active approach to learning and to stimulate reflection about the role of criminal law, offering a complete guide to the LLB/CPE criminal law syllabus with extracts from key cases, academic materials, and explanatory text integrated into a clear narrative. It provides a range of pedagogical features, including concise summaries, diagrams, and examples. Thinking points are included to facilitate and reinforce understanding. Students are referred to the social and moral context of the law, wherever relevant, to encourage them to engage fully with the topical subject matter. This new edition includes coverage of several recent cases of importance including: a more detailed consideration than was possible in the 5th edition of Jogee; Johnson (Lewis) (secondary participation); Johnson (Wayne) (knowledge, strict liability); Golds, Joyce & Kay, Squelch, Wilcocks (diminished responsibility); Meanza (loss of control); Bowler (unlawful act manslaughter); Brandford (duress); Ray (self-defence); the Law Commission report Reform of Offences Against the Person (November 2015).
