Criminal Law

3rd edition

By Kent Roach

CONTENTS
The past decade has seen enormous changes and developments in Canadian criminal law, including amendments to the Criminal Code, important Supreme Court decisions, changes to defence strategies, and the effects of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Criminal Law provides an up-to-date text that lays down the principles of criminal law and guides readers through the entire criminal process, from the enactment of laws to sentencing. The book provides a straightforward treatment of today's hottest issues, including the requirements of mens rea and actus reus for Criminal Code offences, as well as the effect of the Charter on criminal procedure.
