Queensland Criminal Law offers fresh and critical perspectives on issues of contemporary criminal justice in Queensland and presents problems in both current and comparative contexts. It provides comprehensive exploration and analysis of the general principles of criminal law, specific offences, and defenses. Where relevant, comparisons are drawn to developments in common law, federal criminal law, and other jurisdictions.
The book's clear four-part structure assists students in understanding and systematically establishing criminal liability by moving from questions about jurisdiction and general concepts of criminal law, through the elements of an offence, to possible defenses.
Now in its fourth edition, Queensland Criminal Law seeks to raise questions about criminal law and invites readers to critically reflect on their relationship to the law as citizens, as students, and as practitioners.
