Abstract

Waller & Williams Criminal Law provides a critical yet accessible analysis of criminal law in New South Wales and Victoria. It includes comprehensive coverage of all key principles, combining selected principal sources of the criminal law with critical appraisal and evaluation of its doctrines. Current legal and policy debates in criminal justice are highlighted and comparative and policy insights into legal developments of the two common law jurisdictions are provided. The clear discussion and analysis of criminal law concepts makes it an ideal resource for law students and the authoritative discussion is an essential reference for practitioners in the area. The 14th edition includes new leading cases from the principal appellate courts in New South Wales, Victoria and the High Court of Australia, as well as the latest legislative provisions. Recent developments include:

• changes to the Victorian law on attempted rape
• new incitement offences in NSW
• significant new cases on the mental element for drug importation
• changes to the law of excessive self defence, and abortion, in NSW
• new cases on duress as a defence to murder in Victoria
• sexual assault and cognate offences, including law of mistake and affirmative consent
