Abstract

In R v Taj [2018] EWCA Crim 1743, the Court of Appeal (CA) attempts to clarify the rule applicable to mistaken self-defence, where D’s mistake was attributable to psychosis (not amounting to insanity), which in turn was caused by voluntary intoxication. I discuss why, unfortunately, it falls short.
