Towards a Clear and Just Criminal Law: A Criminal Reports Forum

Availability: In Stock

A collection of articles focusing on the reform of every aspect of the criminal justice system such as substantive, procedural, evidentiary, and sentencing, with special emphasis on constructive and specific suggestions for legislative change and/or recodification. The papers were commissioned for a working conference involving academics, judges, and practitioners held at Queen's University. The four major papers include a case for a general part of the Criminal Code, a proposal to simplify criminal procedure, sentencing reform in Canada, and a comprehensive statement of evidence rules.

A number of reactive papers complete the collection:

  • A case against a comprehensive code of evidence
  • An examination of the place of victims in the criminal justice system
  • An exploration of the need for bail reform, the prospects for structuring fair alternative measures
  • The possibility of empowering appellate courts to intervene in the face of a lurking doubt about guilt
