A complete understanding of criminal law is essential to pass the A2 in law and this book provides that, for the first time linking all the elements of criminal law together to form a coherent whole. Written by two practicing teachers, the book is accessible and user-friendly, featuring references to key cases, summary boxes and tables, clear introductions as well as study skills and sample examination questions.

The book provides a complete overview of criminal law and skilfully links all the elements together - the book stresses the practical application of modern criminal law as it is currently used in the English judicial system and establishes the key roles of prosecution, the Crown Prosecution Service, the defense and the judiciary.It goes on to examine how the prosecution build up a case, looking in depth at the offenses of murder and manslaughter and how they interrelate, and examining sex crimes, theft, assault and regulatory offenses in detail, before looking at the role and nature of the defense.

A vitally important final chapter concentrates on study skills relevant to criminal law, including note-taking, file organization, essay and problem questions, revision strategy and the use of legal sources.
