General information on criminal law
If you have been charged with a criminal offence it is advisable to obtain legal advice from a solicitor. We have set out some general information on the elements of criminal liability, how criminal matters proceed, principles of sentencing, bail issues and appeals against a conviction or sentence. We have also included basic information on common criminal matters such as theft, assault and drugs and less common crimes such as money laundering and murder.
For more information, please have a look in our Criminal law section.
Criminal offences can also apply to business activities, such as regulatory breaches and criminal negligence. If you require more detailed information on commercial regulatory breaches and liability you can find further information in the relevant section of our Commercial section.
