Description

Queensland Criminal Law is a comprehensive examination of the principles of criminal law as they relate to the Criminal Code (Qld). It provides a thorough analysis of contemporary criminal justice in Queensland and draws comparisons between relevant developments in common law, federal criminal law, and other jurisdictions.


Throughout this text, students are guided through complex materials and difficult concepts with case matrices, tables and flowcharts, while the four-part structure assists in understanding and systematically establishing criminal liability by moving from questions about jurisdiction and general concepts of criminal law, through to the elements of an offence and possible defences.


The fifth edition of Queensland Criminal Law encourages students to take a critical approach to law and invites them to reflect on their relationship to the law as citizens, students and potential practitioners.
