The facts of this case are extremely harrowing, however this is
the leading case when the courts consider intention with regard to
the common law offence of murder.
The House of Lords had to decide if a father who had thrown is
baby against a hard surface was guilty of murder. The case covers
the legal standard for murder discussed in Nedrick, and the
definition for murder is crystallised.
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.
