Abstract

Discusses R. v Keal (Jonathan Robert) (CA), on whether, in an attempted murder trial, a judge erred by not informing the jury that under the M'Naghten rules, the insanity defence was available where a defendant, although knowing what he did was wrong, believed he had no choice but to commit the act.
