Overview

This introductory text provides an overview and critical examination of the Australian criminal justice process. This revised and updated edition of Australian Criminal Justice analyses the influential matters that mould criminal justice and examines the institutional and administrative features of its operation in Australian jurisdictions. Matters covered include the substantive criminal law, trial procedures, the exercise of discretion, and the power bases that underlie them. There is detailed discussion of both procedural justice in the form of written rules and universally recognised rights and protections, and substantive justice in which common-sense notions of fairness and equity are dominant.
