Hi everyone,
I'm doing my coursework on self defence for my LLB, and am quite confused seeing as different sources seem to be saying different things. My 'essential' textbook says that both public and private defence covers self defence; is this correct?
Thanks!

Yes, self-defence applies to the private and public defence. For example, pursuant to the Criminal Justice and Immigration Act 2008 s.76 a person may use 'reasonable force' to defend himself, others or property. This is a private defence. Contrariwise, s.3(1) Criminal Law Act 1967 provides that a person may use reasonable force to prevent crime, or assist in the lawful arrest of offenders - this is public defence.
