'We can lament the lingering influence of `old school' doctrine-focused criminal law teaching or we can articulate better ways to teach and study criminal law. The contributors to this fine collection are to be congratulated for taking the latter more constructive path. Developing curricula that extend beyond the traditional `general principles + homicide + theft' formula, refusing to artificially extract criminal law rules from the practical and procedures by which they are operationalised, taking historical, cultural, political, economic and other contextual factors seriously, valuing Indigenous and feminist perspectives and insights, employing problem-based learning - it is heartening to read that these and other exciting approaches are well on the way to becoming the `new normal' in criminal law teaching.'

Luke McNamara, Professor, Faculty of Law, UNSW & co-author of D Brown et al, Criminal Laws: Materials and Commentary on Criminal Law and Process of New South Wales (Federation Press, 6th ed, 2015)
