This book provides a comprehensive set of materials on the criminal law and procedure of Queensland and Western Australia, with detailed analysis of the law and extracts from leading cases. It covers the Criminal Codes of the states and other significant state and Commonwealth legislation together with related decisions of the courts. Although primarily designed for university law students, it will also provide a convenient aid for legal practitioners.
Legislative reforms have required much re-writing in the chapters on murder and manslaughter, defensive force, provocation, compulsion and emergency, and committals and trials. There have also been a host of updates required by developments in the case-law. The new cases for this edition include the decisions of the High Court of Australia in Braysich (on evidentiary burdens), Pollock (on provocation), Taiapa (on compulsion), Keenan (on common purpose liability), Gedeon (on entrapment), Dupas (on prejudicial publicity) and White (on proceeds of crime).
