Ross On Crime
Ross on Crime Ninth Edition is a unique, renowned and indispensable point of reference for all criminal law practitioners.
It covers more than 350 terms and principles relating to criminal law practice in an easy-to-use A-to-Z format. As well as a succinct statement of the law on a particular subject, there is a summary of the leading case law in the area.
It is the only Australian work that considers all aspects of criminal justice - substantive criminal law, criminal procedure, evidence and sentencing – and which does so across all Australian jurisdictions.
The Ninth Edition incorporates the many case law decisions and legislative changes that have occurred since the last edition. These include:
- Over 20 new High Court cases;
- Legislative and case law developments relating to the human rights charters;
- Elaboration relating to the application of privilege in criminal cases;
- Clarification of the prosecutor’s duty of fairness;
- A discussion of the judge’s role in summing up to the jury;
- The application of the defence of honest and reasonable mistake in driving cases;
- Elaboration of the doctrine of severance in criminal cases;
- The approach to assessing the cogency of evidence in child sexual offence cases; and
- Clarification of the scope of the provocation defence.
Mirko Bagaric once again updates the encyclopedic format and impressive scope established by the late David Ross QC, ensuring this distinctive title maintains its unique and accessible treatment of criminal law in Australia.
Ross on Crime Ninth Edition continues to impress and inform criminal lawyers, judges and many others. It is essential reading for anyone interested in the criminal law.
