What is Criminal Law?

Criminal law covers the laws, codes and regulations that makes certain actions illegal and subject to criminal punishment if you're found guilty. Usually, a police officer will enforce the criminal law by issuing a fine or infringement, or making an arrest, which could lead to a criminal record and imprisonment.

Criminal lawyers can give you legal advice and represent you in relation to criminal offences (both violent and non-violent offences). For example:

  • Drugs offences (such as drug possession and trafficking).
  • Public order offences.
  • Theft and property offences.
  • Assault and battery.
  • Murder and manslaughter.
  • Sex offences.
  • Fraud (including credit card fraud and identity theft).

As well as procedural and other aspects of criminal law such as:

  • Court hearings and appeals.
  • Bail applications.
  • Adjournments and directions hearings.
  • AVOs and restraining orders.
  • Attending a police station to protect your rights in relation to arrest, police questioning and processes.
