Definition in the Criminal Law


Author: Andrew Halpin (DPhil.)

Publisher: Hart Publishing

ISBN: 1841130710

Category: Law

Page: 219

View: 1854

This book undertakes an investigation of the role and scope of definition within the criminal law set within a wider examination of the nature of legal materials and the diversity of perspectives on law. It offers an account of how the rules and principles found within legal materials provide practical opportunities for responding to, rather than merely following the law. This opens up a richer notion of legal doctrine than has been acknowledged in earlier representations of the workings of legal rules and principles. It also leads to a rejection of some of the established views on the roles of judges and academics, and provides the incentive for a more rigorous assessment of the serious challenge made by a 'critical' perspective on the criminal law. The intimate connection between the use of legal materials and the practice of definition is explored through a number of detailed studies. These deal with some of the apparently intractable problems concerning the definition of theft, and changes to the definition of recklessness culminating in the recent decision of the House of Lords in R v G. Theoretical insights on the different features of the process of definition and a remodelling of culpability issues are combined to question the conventional intellectual apparatus of the criminal law. The approach developed within the book offers a more realistic appraisal of the feasibility of reform, and of expectations for the principle of legality within the criminal law.

The Limits of the Criminal Law


Author: Douglas Husak

Publisher: Oxford University Press

ISBN: 9780198043997

Category: Law

Page: 248

View: 9036

The United States today suffers from too much criminal law and too much punishment. Husak describes the phenomena in some detail and explores their relation, and why these trends produce massive injustice. His primary goal is to defend a set of constraints that limit the authority of states to enact and enforce penal offenses. The book urges the weight and relevance of this topic in the real world, and notes that most Anglo-American legal philosophers have neglected it. Husak's secondary goal is to situate this endeavor in criminal theory as traditionally construed. He argues that many of the resources to reduce the size and scope of the criminal law can be derived from within the criminal law itself-even though these resources have not been used explicitly for this purpose. Additional constraints emerge from a political view about the conditions under which important rights such as the right implicated by punishment-may be infringed. When conjoined, these constraints produce what Husak calls a minimalist theory of criminal liability. Husak applies these constraints to a handful of examples-most notably, to the justifiability of drug proscriptions.

International Criminal Law provides a comprehensive overview of an increasingly integral part of public international law. It complements the usual accounts of the substantive law of those international crimes tried to date before international criminal courts and of the institutional law of those courts with in-depth analyses of fundamental formal juridical concepts such as an 'international crime' and an 'international criminal court'; with detailed examinations of the many international crimes provided for by way of multilateral treaty and of the attendant obligations and rights of states parties; and with sustained attention to the implementation of international criminal law at the national level. Direct, concise, and precise, International Criminal Law should prove a valuable resource for scholars and practitioners of the discipline of international criminal law.
