Smith & Hogan Criminal Law is regarded as the leading doctrinal textbook on criminal law in England and Wales, and has been for almost 40 years. The legal principles and rules involved in criminal law are often complex and technical. It is essential therefore, that students have a clear and comprehensive account of the law to guide their study.
For generations of students Smith & Hogan: Criminal Law has fulfilled that need. It provides a detailed and critical exposition of the general principles of criminal liability and the law of the most important crimes. Its authoritative nature renders it popular with practitioners and leads to its frequent citation by the courts.
