Scots Criminal Law, 3rd Edition

Scots Criminal Law (Bloomsbury Professional) explains all the basic principles relating to Scots criminal law. This edition of the text takes account of significant changes in substantive law, including the introduction of the Human Rights Convention into Scots Law. Case law developments take in the recasting of the law relating to indecency, scrutiny of the peculiarly Scots crime of breach of the peace, examination of the crime of murder, including the meaning of 'wicked recklessness', diminished responsibility, provocation and self defence, as well as analysis of what constitutes contempt of court. It also considers the many legislative developments including the Sexual Offences (Scotland) Act 2009, the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007, and changes arising from the Criminal Justice and Licensing (Scotland) Bill 2009.
