    Ross on Crime Eighth Edition is a unique, renowned and indispensable point of reference for all criminal law practitioners. It covers more than 350 terms and principles relating to criminal law practice in an easy to use A-Z format. As well as a succinct statement of the law on a particular subject, there is a summary of the leading case law in the area.

    It is the only Australian work that considers all aspects of criminal justice - substantive criminal law, criminal procedure, evidence and sentencing – and which does so across all Australian jurisdictions.

    The late David Ross QC’s highly original work is again updated by Mirko Bagaric, maintaining the book’s encyclopaedic format and impressive scope.

    The Eighth Edition incorporates the many case law decisions and legislative changes that have occurred since the last edition. These include:

    • More than 30 new High Court changes;
    • Significant developments in sentencing jurisprudence Australia-wide;
    • Major changes to the interpretation and application of the Uniform Evidence Law; and
    • More than 100 important legislative amendments throughout Australian jurisdictions.

    Legal practitioners across Australia valued and enjoyed the wisdom and wit of the late David Ross QC over many years and seven editions of this unique work. Mirko Bagaric ensures Ross on Crime continues to impress and inform criminal lawyers, judges and many others. It is essential reading for anyone interested in the criminal law.
