Justification as a Legal Defense

Justification as a Legal Defense

Submitted by • July 15, 2013

Justification refers to a valid explanation that is made in court in order to exonerate a person from punishment (Samaha, 2005). Basic principles of criminal law suggest that for an act to be certified as crime there must be sufficient evidence to prove that the act was intentional, unlawful, without defense and justification.
