A new team of authors have revised this classic Waller & Williams Criminal Law text to retain its relevance in legal and policy debates in criminal justice, provide a critical analysis of legal developments and provide a book that is accessible to students in law schools. The 12th edition includes new leading cases from the principal appellate courts in New South Wales, Victoria and the High Court of Australia, as well as the latest legislative provisions that have significantly changed the fabric of the criminal law.

This book unites the principal authoritative sources of the criminal law and a critical appraisal and evaluation of its doctrines. It offers comparative and policy insights into legal developments of the two common law jurisdictions of Victoria and New South Wales. This updated and revised edition has been rewritten to make it more seamlessly adapt to teaching and learning through clearer delineations of the elements of each offence as well as greater contextual background.
