Discuss the extent to which liability in English Law is, and should be fault based. ‘Fault’ is given to a person when they have done something wrong, i.e in terms of ‘blame’ or ‘responsibility’. A person may be blamed and justifiably made liable for actions that can be described as being their fault.When it comes to criminal law, it is the prosecutions role to establish that the defendant has carried out the unlawful act, known as the actus reus, and at that time the defendant had the guilty mind, known as the mens rea. Simply, the deft is made accountable for the fact that he is at ‘fault’ for his actions. If he is responsible he should be ‘blamed’ through a conviction and then ‘punished’ with his sentence.

(a) When securing a criminal conviction the courts will assess three areas comprising of mens rea, which describes the guilty mind, actus reus that describes the guilty act and lastly the defence, which looks at the circumstances surrounding the defendant’s actions and state of mind. Cases of strict liability are often referred to as regulatory offences or quasi criminal offences and are created by statute. They require no mens rea, the defendant is held responsible for the crime regardless of his intentions. Without the presence of mens rea, it is the act itself that is illegal; this then interferes with a defence (most strict liability crimes only have a rebuttable presumption i.e. if the defendant had an honest belief).
