Criminal Process in Queensland has been completely revised.

This well-researched and clearly written book covers the spectrum of criminal process in Queensland, including areas often neglected by other texts, beginning with an overview of recent reforms and the onus of proof the book covers police investigation procedures, police accountability and charge and bail, through to pre-trial processes, trial, sentencing and appeal. The book also includes a discussion of the role of and response to victims in the criminal justice process.

New material in this edition includes:

  •        Consideration of the continued trend in statutory exceptions to the rule that the Crown must prove all elements of an offence;
  •        extended focus on policing by consent;
  •        discussion of the recent decisions on police access to suspects electronic devices;
  •        changes in approach to offences involving domestic and family violence;
  •         discussion of new approaches to organised crime, including control orders;
  •        expanded consideration of the application of the proviso in appeals matters;
  •         discussion of Queensland’s Murri Courts.


With its clear and well-structured analysis and easily accessible socio-legal approach, Criminal Process in Queensland will be of great assistance to students, practitioners and those working in related government and non-government organisations.
