There can be few criminal law exams that do not contain at least one question requiring consideration of the non fatal offences against the person. And,as questions most commonly raise issues of liability in respect of more than one of the offences it is important to know the relationship between them.

  • wounding / causing grievous bodily harm with intent – s18 Offences Against the Person Act 1861
  • malicious wounding / inflicting grievous bodily harm – s20 Offences Against the Person Act 1861
  • assault occasioning actual bodily harm – s47 Offences Against the Person Act 1861
  • Assault / battery – s39 Criminal Justice Act 1988
