Clarkson and Keating: Criminal Law: Text and Materials:-

  • Examines the main principles and rules of criminal law and explores the theoretical bases upon which they are founded in an easily digestible text
  • Combines the best features of a standard “textbook” with those of a “cases and materials” book to provide guidance and direction on the law, whilst presenting a substantial amount of key primary material selected from a diversity of sources
  • Includes extracts from cases and academic articles, carefully edited to make them accessible to students
  • Draws on non-legal contextual material to provide a social context to the law rather than a mere analysis of the rules

  • An examination of hate crime offences
  • Discussion of the increased focus on restorative justice
  • Developments in case law, including cases on causation (Hughes) assisted suicide and necessity (Nicklinson), loss of control (Clinton; Asmelash), participation and transferred malice (Gnango)
  • Legislation updates, including amendments to the law on self-defence.
