Blackstone's Guide to the Protection from Harassment Act 1997
Originally introduced to deal with the problem of "stalking", the Protection from Harassment Act 1997 covers many types of public order and personal dispute situations such as industrial strikes, neighbourhood disputes, investigative reporters and bullying at work. The Act will therefore havewidespread implications for both civil and criminal practitioners. This new guide examines the background of the new law and its likely impact. It details the Act and gives practical advice to both civil and criminal lawyers, the police and the courts who will have to apply the new legislation. Particular attention is given to the complex relationship betweencivil and criminal remedies introduced by the Act and also to the likely impact of criminal courts being given the power to make injunction style restraining orders. The guide is intended for civil and criminal practitioners, advisory agencies, the police and the courts.
