Duffing Up the Criminal Law?

Criminal Law and Philosophy 14 (3):319-333 (2020)
  Copy   BIBTEX


R.A. Duff’s The Realm of the Criminal Law advances the literature on criminalization by providing the most thorough exploration and defence yet provided of the intuitively attractive idea that criminalization is properly limited to public wrongs only. I outline here six concerns I have with the view, as presented in this book, and suggest where the account needs further elaboration, defence, or rethinking.
