- Learning Outcomes
- Crime and Property covers a range of topics in which there is an interface between the principles of criminal law and property law. The most obvious of these can be found in the Crimes Act 1961.The central focus of the paper is on crimes against rights of property (e.g. theft, obtaining by deception, receiving, burglary, etc.) contained in Part 10 of the Crimes Act. Beyond the central focus of crimes against rights of property, we may also consider some other ways in which criminal law and property law interact.
