Canada's premier treatise on criminal law has been thoroughly revised and updated once again. Written by defence counsel Morris Manning, Q.C. and Professor Peter Sankoff, Manning, Mewett & Sankoff: Criminal Law, 5th ed provides an updated, detailed and critical examination of the criminal law of Canada, from the governing principles of criminal law, to a clear and comprehensive analysis of important offences in the Criminal Code and the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act as well as defences.
Previous editions of this text have been cited repeatedly by the courts at every level including the Supreme Court of Canada and every appellate court. The text facilitates efficient and focused legal research for practitioners, providing them a foundation upon which to build cogent legal argument.
The text also provides the judiciary with a comprehensive reference of the existing criminal law and enables them to consider where new developments might be desirable. Thus, it is an essential resource for Crown and defence counsel, the judiciary, academics and students alike.
The new edition has been thoroughly revised to account for the many major developments in criminal law that have occurred since the publication of the previous edition in 2009, including a variety of new offences that did not exist at that time.
Similarly, the new edition also provides in-depth expert analysis on the significant changes to criminal law defences which have emerged during the same period, including the new "streamlined" self-defence regime and the Supreme Court's revisiting of the "air of reality" test.
