In the previous case Diplock LJ set the "Reasonable man"
objective test for recklessness in a criminal case.
This case, a year after the Caldwell ruling, goes to the Court
of Appeal to see whether the Caldwell test should apply in the case
of a minor of lower than average intelligence.
A comedic look at some of the most famous criminal cases in
English Law with legal expert and barrister Chris Kehoe, and
comedian Alex Boardman. In every episode Chris will guide us
through a famous area in English Criminal Law. He will explain the
facts of the case, set out the legal principles the case raises and
offer insight into the reasons behind the verdicts of the judges
who presided over them.
This easy to understand series is not just for those studying
the Law or working in the profession but is for anyone with even a
passing interest in legal matters.
As well as detailed case studies, in shorter “Brief Notes”
episodes, Chris will tell us what being a barrister is really like,
as well as explaining the court system, legal tactics and even
answering any questions listeners may have. If you’ve ever enjoyed
a legal drama on TV or film, or can’t get enough of novels
featuring crime and courtroom battles, then this series will give
you a further insight into that world.
