Criminal Law and Procedure A is a compulsory subject in the Bachelor of Laws program offered by the Faculty of Law. Students enrolled in this subject will learn about criminal offences (including fatal and non-fatal offences against the person, and offences against property) as well as criminal defences (including such defences as accident, mistake, self-defence, provocation, and insanity). Upon completion of the subject, students will be able to demonstrate their understanding of criminal law and their ability to engage in legal reasoning by discussing and solving complex legal problems orally and in writing.
Assumed knowledge is the minimum level of knowledge of a subject area that students are assumed to have acquired through previous study. It is the responsibility of students to ensure they meet the assumed knowledge expectations of the subject. Students who do not possess this prior knowledge are strongly recommended against enrolling and do so at their own risk. No concessions will be made for students’ lack of prior knowledge.
This subject is not available as a general elective. To be eligible for enrolment, the subject must be specified in the students’ program structure.
