Abstract Originally delivered at the Criminal Lawyers Association of the Northern Territory Conference in 2015, this article sets out the injustices created by extensions of criminal liability for accessories and the lack of logic in reducing the mens rea to foresight of a possibility. The authors also consider the lack of harmony across Australia in the law of complicity and have provided updates based on the recent decisions in R v Jogee; Ruddock v The Queen [2016] 2 WLR 681; [2016] UKSC 8; [2016] UKPC 7 where the UK Supreme Court sat for the first time, at the same time, as the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council and the decision of the High Court of Australia in Miller v The Queen (2016) 251 A Crim R 105; [2016] HCA 30.
