Description

Since publication of the first edition in 1996, Criminal Law by Kent Roach has become one of the best-selling and most highly-regarded titles in Irwin Law's Essentials of Canadian Law series. Professor Roach's clear and concise account of the current state of substantive criminal law and theory in Canada has become essential reading, not only in law schools, but also among judges, practitioners, and others involved in the criminal justice system. Irwin Law is pleased to announce publication of a thoroughly updated and expanded third edition of this most important book.
