LL.B.II Term Paper : LB - 203 – Criminal Law - II Objectives of the Course The primary objective of criminal law is to maintain law and order in the society and to protect the life and liberty of people. It is for this reason that people place their ultimate reliance on this branch of law for protection against all injuries that human conduct can inflict on individuals and institutions. Due to these reasons, the penal law cannot afford to be weak, ambiguous or ineffective. Nor can it be harsh and arbitrary in its impact. The application of criminal law has to be uniform regardless of any discrimination on grounds of class, caste, religion, sex or creed etc. of either the criminal or the victim. The subject of Criminal Law-II has been so designed as to generate critical thinking among students about the stated objectives of criminal law and to enable them to scrutinize the recent developments and changes that have taken place in the field. The primary objectives of this course are:• To familiarize the students with the key concepts regarding crime and criminal law. • To expose the students to the range of mental states that constitute mens rea essential for committing crime. • To teach specific offences under the Indian Penal Code. • To keep students abreast of the latest developments and changes in the field of criminal law.
