Course Description

This course further explores the criminal law of Queensland and follows on from LAWS11060 Criminal Law.

This course examines the statutory offences specified in the Queensland Criminal Code and the common law (cases) which interpret the offences. This course also examines the Commonwealth Criminal Code as well as the Commonwealth Crimes Act with students being introduced to the differences that exist between the federal and Queensland's state-based criminal offences.
