Abstract

The Teaching of Criminal Law is an edited collection of 16 essays by 24 criminal law teachers from New Zealand, Australia, England, Ireland and Northern Ireland. While the essays are many and varied, the central messages of the book are clear. First, the collection suggests that criminal law teachers have choices when it comes to what and how to teach. Second, several contributors, along with the editors, argue that criminal law teachers have a responsibility to reflect on whether their classes are fit for purpose, drawing from something more than anecdote and intuition. The editors, Kris Gledhill and Ben Livings, begin the collection by voicing a suspicion, seemingly borne out by a review of course synopsis, that little has changed in criminal law teaching over the last 25 years (pp. 12). The aim of the book is therefore to provoke change in criminal law teaching.
