Criminal Litigation and Sentencing offers an introduction to the law, principles and practices of criminal procedure that govern the role of the criminal advocate across the full range of criminal proceedings, including trial in the magistrates, youth and Crown courts.
The manual has been fully updated in light of recent legal developments, including the Criminal Procedure Rules 2010, implementation of the Crime & Security Act 2010 and coverage of gang crimes and court/police powers under the Crime and Security Act 2010.
Additional forms and examples of completed paperwork have been added to assist with a practical understanding of this topic.
Criminal Litigation and Sentencing is essential reading for all trainee barristers, and is also a useful source of reference for junior practitioners wishing to refresh their knowledge of the criminal justice system and its procedures.
