What is Criminal Law

Criminal law is a fascinating area of the law and its one that you will know more about than you think you do because you will have come across it in all kinds of situations most notably in the media on television programs and when you are looking at criminal law.


You will find that it is an area unlike say the law of contract which is where the state is involved so it is the state so it’s a society it’s us saying what it is that we find a parent for instance so something like murder or manslaughter or theft these are offenses that society needs to control in some way.


And so that’s what the criminal law does but it covers a spectrum of areas from the very serious to what we sometimes described as a regulatory crime which covers strict liability offenses so you’ll be looking at very serious areas where you have to look at both immense rare the mental element and the actus Reus down to the less serious offenses where perhaps only the actus Reus the physical element of the crime is involved.
