Complete Criminal Law: Text, Cases, and Materials

Front Cover
Oxford University Press, Apr 19, 2018 - Criminal law - 784 pages
Complete Criminal Law is supported by clear author commentary, choice extracts, and useful learning features. The explanations and examples in this textbook have been crafted to help students hone their understanding of criminal law.

The Complete titles are ambitious in their scope; they've been carefully developed with teachers to offer law students more than just a presentation of the key concepts. Instead they offer a complete package. Only by building on the foundations of the subject, by showing how the law works, demonstrating its application through extracts from cases and judgments, and by giving students the tools and the confidence to think critically about the law will they gain a complete understanding.

This book is accompanied by free to access online resources for both students and lecturers.

For students
- Annual updates
- Links to relevant websites
- Answer guidance on problem questions and 'thinking points' from the text
- Extra exam style questions with answers guidance

For lecturers
- Test bank of 200 multiple choice questions
