Locating the Body in 'Bodily Harm'

Theodore Bennett

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


This article critically engages with the legal boundary of the human body by
exploring what kinds of harm can and should count as ‘bodily harm’ within
criminal law. It argues that medical and technological developments involving the
body have overtaken the current legal conception of the body in this area. It
proposes that refocusing on the connection between the body and the person will
provide a more satisfactory account of the body in ‘bodily harm’.
