Overview This work presents an unprecedented and scholarly critique of the post-appeal review phase of the Australian criminal justice system. It offers a unique insight for students and practitioners into a new and developing area of criminal law. The authors identify a fundamental flaw that lies at the heart of the Australian criminal justice system: an inconsistency between what constitutes a miscarriage of justice under substantive law against what constitutes a miscarriage of justice under procedural law. By examining the problematic nature of the criminal appeal rights in Australia, Sangha and Moles argue that the existing system does not comply with the rule of law provisions or Australia's international human rights obligations. South Australia has introduced a new statutory right of appeal and Tasmaina is considering doing the same, to address this issue which represents the first substantive change to the criminal appeal rights in Australia in 100 years. Miscarriages of Justice: Criminal Appeals and the Rule of Law in Australia explains the operation of this legislation and advances a compelling argument for its nationwide adoption. This is achieved through an examination of a number of Australian (and international) wrongful conviction cases as well as discussion of specific legal issues and the problematic area of compensation for wrongful convictions. Features * Authoritative analysis * Examines leading Australian cases * Unique text on a new and developing area of law Related Titles D Chappell & P Wilson, Issues in Australian Crime and Criminal Justice, 2005
