Ross on Crime is the only Australian work that considers all aspects of criminal justice - substantive criminal law, criminal procedure, evidence and sentencing – and which does so across all Australian jurisdictions.

This seminal work of the late David Ross QC is updated and adapted by Professor Mirko Bagaric, Dean of the Deakin Law School and highly respected author of criminal justice texts.

The Sixth Edition is substantially updated to incorporate the considerable changes in criminal law which have occurred in the past four years, including:

  • a discussion of over 50 new High Court cases on criminal justice;
  • a discussion of the major developments in evidence law associated with the recent adoption of uniform evidence law in Victoria and the Northern Territory;
  • an examination of sentencing reform in the form of the development and refinement of aggravating and mitigating factors and presumptive penalties in a number of jurisdictions;
  • a discussion of the impact of the human rights charters on the criminal law in two jurisdictions;
  • an explanation of the expansion of the separation of powers doctrine in the Commonwealth jurisdiction and its impact on the criminal law; and
  • an overview of new investigative powers.
Legal practitioners across Australia valued and enjoyed the wisdom and wit of the late David Ross QC over many years and five editions of this unique work.

Mirko Bagaric maintains the book's encyclopedic format and impressive scope, ensuring Ross on Crime Sixth Edition will impress, inform and frequently amuse criminal lawyers, judges and many others. It is essential for anyone interested in the criminal law.
