Consent and Criminal Law

In this course, Professor Victor Tadros (University of Warwick) explores the role of consent in criminal law. In the first module, we introduce a theory of consent. In the second module, we discuss the role consent plays in criminal law. In the third module, we examine the nature of coercion, and coercion undermining valid consent, before turning to deception and consent in the fourth module. In the fifth module, we finish by looking at autonomy, capacity and intoxication.


In this module, we introduce consent, focusing in particular on (i) defining consent in the law (ii) consent as desire, and criticisms of this view (iii) consent as permission (iv) consent as communicative action (v) a theory of consent as permission.
