It sets out clearly all matters relevant to the prosecution of indictable offences in Victoria, addressing general principles of criminal law and using a succinct alphabetical catalogue of indictable offences. Analysis of general principles of criminal law is complemented by detailed references to textbooks, looseleaf services, articles and caselaw for further exploration. Text of the relevant provision is included for ease of use.

Content The work opens with a useful chapter of definitions and a practical outline of broad principles of law and procedure relevant to charging and trial of indictable offences. Briefly and practically, the commentary deals with different aspects of criminal pleadings including alternative verdicts, duplicity and joinder, and proper content of indictments. It also identifies law relevant to causation, defences, liability, sentencing, bail and criminal injuries compensation in Victoria.

The major second part comprises an alphabetical treatment of a wide range of indictable offences, addressing the essential characteristics of an offence and identifying cognate charges which may be considered as an option.
