Scots criminal law: a critical analysis

Pamela R. Ferguson, Claire McDiarmid

    Research output: Book/ReportBook


    As well as providing a clear statement of the current law, Scots Criminal Law - A Critical Analysis also considers what types of behaviours are subject to the criminal law sanction, and why. It is now 10 years since devolution placed responsibility for the future development and reform of criminal law largely on the re-established Scottish Parliament, and this book offers a timely re-assessment of the law, in an attempt to determine whether it meets the needs of modern Scottish society. The book explores the theoretical underpinnings of the current law, and aims to promote a reflective approach to its study.
    While the book is suitable for use by students and practitioners alike, it will also be stimulating for anyone with an interest in the future development of criminal law.
