Celebrating fifty years since it first published in 1965, Smith & Hogan's Criminal Law is rightly regarded as the leading doctrinal textbook on criminal law in England and Wales. The book owes its consistent popularity to its accessible style, depth of analysis, and breadth of coverage.

Professor David Ormerod has been joined by Karl Laird to continue the tradition set down by Professors Sir John Smith and Brian Hogan by producing a textbook for a wide legal readership. The text continues to be an invaluable resource for undergraduate students and an essential reference source for criminal law practitioners.

Review from previous edition: "This is the text to turn to on almost all points of criminal law. It offers depth, clarity, and extensive coverage."

--Dr Stephen Skinner, University of Exeter

"As a student, a barrister, and a judge I have found Smith and Hogan's Criminal Law an invaluable companion for more than forty years. I would regard it as an essential work of reference for anyone learning about or professionally practising the criminal law."

--The Hon Mr Justice Maddison

"From a student perspective, Smith and Hogan's Criminal Law provides the most comprehensive coverage of criminal law. It was refreshing to find a text where the subject-matter was accessible and engaging without over-simplification. It provides a clear, current and in-depth account of the
subject, whilst offering avenues for further investigation. The critical analysis, academic views and ideas for reform proved to be invaluable for getting the best grades in exams and assignments. It was a great starting point before accessing any of the primary sources. In my view, it is an
essential companion for any undergraduate law student."

--Sophie Greta Lynch, LLB Law Student, Southampton University
