An Introduction to Criminal Law in Queensland and Western Australia provides Law students and practitioners with a comprehensive and current guide to the fundamentals of the criminal law in Queensland and Western Australia. The text also has direct application in other code jurisdictions, such as Tasmania. The work will be updated to reflect recent changes to the legislation in each State and continues to serve as a valuable resource to Law students and practitioners. Of particular importance is the incorporation of the 2008 changes to the Criminal Code (WA). This work is ideal for Law students approaching the subject for the first time.
