Queensland Criminal Law 3rd Edition offers fresh and critical perspectives on many issues of contemporary criminal justice in Queensland and presents old problems in new and comparative contexts. The book seeks to raise many questions about criminal law, rather than provide definitive answers and readers of this book are invited to critically reflect on their relationship to the criminal law as citizens, as students, as practitioners, and perhaps, as potential subjects of its sanctions. The book facilitates the study of the criminal law in Queensland; by exploring and analysing the general principles and specific offences under Queensland's criminal law; and drawing comparisons-where relevant-to developments at common law, federal criminal law, and in other jurisdictions.
 
Key features:

Gives detailed consideration to both QLD criminal law and common law - explores and analyses the general principles and specific offences under Queensland's criminal law and comprehensively covers the rapidly expanding area of federal criminal law and the general principles of criminal responsibility under the Criminal Code (Cth).
The structure and case matrices throughout the book assist students in the preparation for and answering of exam questions and case analyses.
Tables, flowcharts and other illustrations summarise some key points and visualise many of the complexities of its general principles and specific offences.
 
New to this edition:

All amendments to relevant statutes, including the changes to the provocation defence in s 304 of the Criminal Code (Qld), are included
Terrorism chapter updated in light of the Nuclear Terrorism Legislation Amendment Act 2012
