Introduction to Actus Reus

For the cases I've included, I've put in some pictures to explain the case rather than write a huge description on each. If you want to find out information about the cases, please refer to my revision notes entitled 'Principles of Criminal Liability Cases' :) Click HERE to be linked straight to them. (They'll pop up in a new window!)

Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have!
Also, if you find any mistakes, or have any ideas as to how I can improve this, please let me know!

Thank you! :)
