Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The question of whether children should be given special consideration by the criminal law through the presumption of doli incapax has recently been considered by the House of Lords in C v DPP [1995] 2 WLR 383. The future of the presumption may be at stake not only in the United Kingdom but also in Australia when account is taken of the recommendations of the Review of Commonwealth Criminal Law (1990).
