Scots Criminal Law

A Critical Analysis

First Edition

Pamela R. Ferguson
Claire McDiarmid

Published by Edinburgh University Press

Now in its second edition, Scots Criminal Law: A Critical Analysis provides a clear statement of the current law, focusing on theory and criticism. It also considers what types of behaviours are subject to the criminal law sanction, and why.

New to this Edition:

  • Uses the new definitions of the crimes of murder and breach of the peace, and the broader application of necessary defence
  • Takes into account key statutory developments including the enactment of the Criminal Justice and Licensing (Scotland) Act 2010 and the Offensive Behaviour at Football and Threatening Communications (Scotland) Act 2012
