This is an introduction and case update on theft and fraud offences for For Legal on behalf of the Law Training Centre

Theft and Fraud offences range from shoplifting to multi-million pound vat frauds, and are amongst those most often dealt with in criminal courts. There are a range of offences, and we will look at some of the most frequently charged; it’s always useful to have knowledge of these and refresh the basics to time to time. It can be particularly useful to look at the offence of theft itself, as the legislation addresses a range of issues and circumstances which may come up in practice.

We will also have a look at some key and recent cases to see how the legislation is applied in practice

So we are going to do two things, go over the key parts of Theft and Fraud Acts, and look at some key and recent cases.

The key legislation includes the Theft Act 1968, and the Fraud Act 2006
