This chapter focuses on Alan Rodger's contributions to the development of Scots criminal law. It begins by describing his early career at the Scots Bar. It then details his time in the Crown Office; his appointment as a judge; and his views on the law on corroboration, the crime of murder, human rights, and diminished responsibility. It also considers some of the cases where Lord Rodger played a major role in developing the criminal law to take account of the new Human Rights landscape.

Keywords:   Alan Rodger, criminal law, corroboration, murder, Scots law, human rights
