Following the tradition established by Graham Kenny and Jim Herlihy in 1978, John Devereux and Meredith Blake present the eighth edition of Kenny Criminal Law in Queensland and Western Australia that is a comprehensive and current guide to the fundamentals of the criminal law in Queensland and Western Australia, much of which has direct application in other Code jurisdictions, such as Tasmania.
This edition incorporates the many recent amendments to the Criminal Codes and to various other statutes relating to criminal law in both Queensland and Western Australia. Of particular importance is the incorporation of the 2008 changes to the Criminal Code (WA) which have significantly changed the structure and substance of the homicide offences and the excuses associated with homicide in Western Australia.
• A clear distinction between different jurisdictions allows readers to focus on their relevant codes and legislation
• Accessible design and clear structure assists student learning
• Direct application in other code law jurisdictions such as Tasmania
