Criminal Law

by Mark Thomas

Description

Criminal Law is a brand new text aimed at students studying on an LLB or GDL course.

Written in plain English, it provides students at all stages of their course with a detailed understanding of the theoretical and substantive aspects of the law of crime, whilst maintaining a practice-based approach.

The text reinforces the teaching ethos of its author: first, it provides a sound base level of knowledge of the substantive law. It then adds to this knowledge to ensure that students are able to apply the substantive law using a variety of skills in different contexts. Finally, the text shows students how to engage with the subject and critically evaluate and consider the implications of the law in any given context. It is essential that students understand the dynamism of criminal law and ask the difficult questions that have been, and remain to be, pondered by the academics. As such, the book will consider, alongside legal considerations, the social, economic and political context.

Criminal Law is the ideal text for any student at degree level.
