LAW 535-001 – Criminal Law

Wrongfulness


Wrongfulness can be understood in one of two ways:

  1. Illegal
  2. Morally wrong
    • Moral wrongfulness can also be determined subjectively or objectively:
      • The objective standard asks whether the actor understood his actions violated society's view of morality.
      • The subjective test asks whether the actor was able to understand that his actions violated his own personal moral code.
