Celebrating fifty years since it first published in 1965, Smith & Hogan's Criminal Law is rightly regarded as the leading doctrinal textbook on criminal law in England and Wales.

The book owes its consistent popularity to its accessible style, depth of analysis, and breadth of coverage. Professor David Ormerod has been joined by Karl Laird to continue the tradition set down by Professors Sir John Smith and Brian Hogan by producing a textbook for a wide legal readership.

The text continues to be an invaluable resource for undergraduate students and an essential reference source for criminal law practitioners.
