The Dickson Poon School of Law presents the KCrim: Michaelmas Hearings with Matt Matravers (York University)

Title: Defrayed culpability: the necessary neatness of criminal law and ‘remaindering’ messiness to sentencing


This paper explores Professor Andrew Simester’s new account of the relationship between threshold moral responsibility and culpability. It does so by examining how and when culpability is ‘defrayed’, the ways in which that can be reflected in the criminal law, and what that leaves to be done by just sentencing.
