Syllabus:

Criminal Law introduces the Australian criminal justice system, principles of criminal responsibility, and the classification of criminal offences according to seriousness (summary, minor indictable and major indictable) and liability (full fault, strict liability and absolute liability). The bulk of the semester is dedicated to examining and, applying to practical situations, (i) the elements of the substantive offences of dishonesty, unlawful killing, sexual offences, indecent filming and assault and cause harm offences;(ii) the defences of self-defence and mental impairment; and (iii) extended liability through the law of attempt. The course uses a 'case file approach' to seminars to provide students with career readiness skills. The class time of the course is designed to encourage student interaction with each other and with staff, to maximise learning opportunities and build a supportive and inclusive culture that will foster networks that will sustain students throughout their degree and career.
