The legal principles and rules involved in criminal law are often complex and technical. It is essential therefore, that students have a clear and comprehensive account of the law to guide their study. For generations of students Smith & Hogan: Criminal Law has fulfilled that need. It provides a detailed and critical exposition of the general principles of criminal liability and the law of the most important crimes. Its authoritative nature renders it popular with practitioners and leads to its frequent citation by the courts.

"Professor David Ormerod is regarded as the quintessential 'practitioner's academic' for his pragmatism and ability to diffuse his intellectual arguments into sound practical principles." Simon McKay, Solicitor Advocate, Covert Policing Review 2005
"There is no criminal law textbook like it. Its detailed discussion of every offence from necrophilia to bomb hoaxes is without comparison. A student can be confident that if an offence is not dicussed in Smith and Hogan Criminal Law it is not likely to appear in an exam." (Jonathan Herring, Times Higher Education Supplement)
