Joint Enterprise remains one of the more complex areas of criminal law. The case of R. v Jogee [2016] UKSC 8, found that the doctrine of parasitic accessory liability could not be supported and went on to restate key principles.

It helps to have an understanding of how the issues were set out and resolved in Jogee, giving a context to the principles the case restated, and to see how they were applied in some subsequent case well as refreshing some older cases dealing with withdrawal from a joint enterprise.

This presentation aims to do three things: consider key paragraphs in Jogee, look at some subsequent cases `applying the principles it set out, and briefly look at cases dealing with withdrawal from joint enterprise.
