Description

Criminal Law and Procedure: Cases and Materials, now in its eleventh edition, weaves commentary and case law together to provide contextual background for the legislation that governs both regulatory and criminal offences. The text also provides practical information on how that legislation is applied.

Beginning with an examination of the process by which criminal law is created and the motivations that drive its development, Criminal Law and Procedure continues with an analysis of the impact of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. It then moves through basic criminal procedures, such as bail hearings and jury selection, as the authors examine the fundamental requirements for procedural fairness in the system.

Following a discussion of mens rea and actus reus and the principles of criminal liability, the book provides an overview of defences and, finally, sentencing principles. New to the eleventh edition is material on ethical duties of counsel and professional responsibility.
