Disgrifiad cryno

Is it fair that someone could be convicted of robbery even tough that person merely used the slightest degree of force (e.g. the slightest touch or nudge)? Given that ingesting intoxicants may be neither immoral nor illegal why does voluntary intoxication attract criminal liability? Is it fair that at present the distinction between a 'sane diabetic' and an 'insane diabetic' hangs by a thin thread: 'external factors' (alcohol or insulin) versus 'internal factors' (lack of food or insufficient insulin)? The module is designed to explore the most controversial of criminal law topics in a unique, fun and therefore accessible way. It will focus on controversies issues arising from non-fatal offences against the person, property offences, inchoate offences: attempt, conspiracy and assisting and encouraging under the Serious Crime Act 2007, defences of incapacity and mental conditions and general defences.
