Criminal Defences in Australia is a well-respected work on the market, and has been cited and referred to in practitioner and academic circles. This invaluable resource will provide you with the best possible defences for your clients, and will consolidate your knowledge of criminal law.

Extensively revised and updated, Criminal Defences in Australia (4th edition) provides a comprehensive analysis of the defences to criminal prosecutions both at common law and under statute in all jurisdictions of Australia. The various defences are described in detail, together with the circumstances under which they can be raised and how several defences can be combined.

The inter-relationship of the defences is also fully explored, with an eye to jurisdictional differences. It also includes additional analysis of Infanticide and Infancy as well as touching upon the Commonwealth Criminal Code, to consolidate your knowledge of possible criminal defences to be used in Court.
