The purpose of this book is to provide a clear and concise guide to the key elements of criminal law. The book is written specifically for law students,primarily at undergraduate level, but it will also be helpful to students studying law as part of their course. Each chapter opens with a checklist of the areas covered in that part of the book, and the following text provides an easily assimilable discussion of the important principles of the topic in question. By avoiding the complexities of many textbooks,Essential Criminal Law aims to provide students with a clear understanding of the law, so that they can then build on their knowledge by reference to recent cases, legislation and academic articles referred to in the texts, returning to this book for revision purposes.
