Crimes Act

Jump to: navigation, search

Crimes Act (with its variations) is a stock short title used for legislation in Australia, New Zealand and the United States, relating to the criminal law (including both substantive and procedural aspects of that law). It tends to be used for Acts which consolidate or codify the whole of the criminal law.

The Bill for an Act with this short title may have been known as a Crimes Bill during its passage through Parliament.

Crimes Acts may be a generic name either for legislation bearing that short title or for all legislation which relates to the criminal law.
