This Criminal Law Handbook is intended to consolidate past teaching and doctrine on Maltese Criminal Law that has withstood the test of time and are still valid and applicable today, but at the same time seeks to build upon, and update what has emerged particularly in light of subsequent legislative enactments.
Above all, this Handbook aims to be a useful aid to students of criminal law and procedure as well as a point of reference to researchers in Maltese criminal law generally.
“Stefano Filletti’s Criminal Law Handbook is an exemplary initiative even more so because it’s coming from the Head of the Department of criminal law of the University of Malta. The practice of law is a never ending process of learning because law is not static but dynamic. The various chapters are rich in updated case-law. In Malta we do not have an annotated criminal code, so this is a great bonus. This is a fantastic contribution to the study of criminal law. It’s an indispensable tool for students and practitioners alike. One couldn’t ask for more.” – Judge Carmel A. Agius, Retired President of The International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslovia (ICTY) and The International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals (IRMCT)
