Sexual Offences and the Law presents the substantive law governing sexual offending in England and Wales in its socio-legal and historical context. It outlines the complexities of the Sexual Offences Act 2003, associated pieces of legislation and the common law offences in a clear, linear narrative.

The book highlights and discusses key themes in the contemporary law including rape and consent; sexual offences against children; abuse of people with mental disorders; pornography offences; and prostitution. It offers a critical discussion of challenges for the law and potential ways forward for the future.

Designed to be a comprehensive overview, Sexual Offences and the Law will be an invaluable resource for students of law and criminology taking courses on sexual offences or pursuing research in this area.
