This new title in the Law Guidebook Series comprehensively covers the common law jurisdictions of Victoria, NSW and SA. Although there is some commonality in relation to underlying principles of criminal responsibility, offence categories and major defences across Australia, there are alsosignificant differences and this book is provides students in these jurisdictions with the best possible resource to assist with their study of criminal law and procedure. With its problem-solving focus, the Criminal Law Guidebook brings the law alive. Taking an incremental approach to learning, students are guided through the criminal law and its procedures gradually so that they are not overwhelmed by the detail. The guidebook also uses practical applications andeveryday scenarios to enable students to develop key practical skills in analysis, problem-solving and legal argument.
