Abstract

Examines how the Scottish courts have interpreted the actus reus of the offence of behaving in a threatening or abusive manner, under the Criminal Justice and Licensing (Scotland) Act 2010 s.38, which was introduced after the High Court of Justiciary in Smith v Donnelly restated the test for the actus reus of breach of the peace.
