The Core Text Series provides students with reliable, concise, value-for-money coverage of key legal disciplines. Each title in the series seeks to strip its subject to the core - identifying the fundamental principles which underlie it and concentrating on the most important topics - while continuing to identify the intellectual challenges and difficulties within it. Each of the available texts takes you straight to the heart of the subject matter by providing a succinct and reliable account of the current law. Written by leading academic authors, titles in the series are invaluable guides for students of law at all levels.
Criminal Law provides a concise account of all the relevant aspects of criminal law in a manageable and thought-provoking way. Underpinned by the author's expert insight, this is an essential introductory guide to criminal law. In an area of law where case law is so integral to effective understanding of the different legal principles, Criminal Law provides numerous key case summaries to help you remember the key points of law with an authoritative guiding commentary to help you think critically about and around the subject.
Students are able to consolidate their own learning through supporting chapter summaries, further reading, and self-test questions throughout the book.
