Essays in Criminal Law in Honour of Sir Gerald Gordon

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter focuses on the codification of the criminal law, specifically the draft criminal code for Scotland, which was developed over a number of years by a group of academics and published as a consultation paper by the Scottish Law Commission. It assesses the results of that consultation, addresses the only two arguments advanced against codification, looks briefly at developments since the draft was published, and asks where we go from here.
