Education Monograph No 5

This monograph explores the origins and history of the Court of Criminal Appeal (CCA) for NSW. The monograph explains the criminal appeal structure that predated the Criminal Appeal Act, recounts the little-known legal troubles of the Attorney General who pioneered the Act, and canvasses the parliamentary and public debates on the Criminal Appeal Bill. Also discussed are the proviso; various amendments made to the Act since its inception (including provisions for Crown appeals against sentence, ?time to count? and interlocutory appeals); controversies surrounding the composition of the court; and the jurisprudential evolution of the ?unreasonable verdict? ground of appeal. The monograph then goes on to catalogue some of the more notorious cases to come before the CCA.
