The General Part of Criminal Law. A Ghanaian Casebook. Vol.1

by Henrietta Mensa-Bonsu

A study on criminal law in two volumes, both accessible to the general reader and to professionals. Volume one covers the general theoretical part of criminal law. It defines and discusses the general nature of crime and criminal law, the scope and functions of criminal law, and the principle of legality. It similarly proposes definitions, theories, purposes and aims, and justification of punishment. The work covers criminal liability; the actus reus, the mens rea, and exceptions to these liabilities. A final section outlines causation theories, joint causation, contributory negligence and jurisdiction. The volume also includes articles on theoretical problems and extensive case notes.
