Loveless offers a student-centred approach to the criminal law syllabus with clear explanations of general legal principles combined with extracts from leading cases and a range of academic materials. The extracts have been selected to ensure that they are detailed enough to illustrate the point of law under consideration, but succinct enough not to disrupt the flow of the text or to intimidate the student new to the study of criminal law.
Who is it for? Undergraduate law students seeking an accessible introduction to criminal law.
Presentation: It is engaging and readily understandable. There are useful summaries of key points and definitions.
Would you recommend it? This is an excellent book, especially for students struggling with the heavier tomes on criminal law.
