The new Criminal Procedure Rules 2005 govern all aspects of criminal procedure in all criminal courts. They consolidate all existing procedural rules with new provisions aimed at increasing efficiency and improving case management. The Rules are designed to bring about a cultural change and all those involved in the criminal justice system are affected by the new regime.

The author team is comprised of experts in the field with inside knowledge of the Criminal Procedure Rules - Duncan Atkinson and Tim Moloney have both been members of the Criminal Bar Association Working Party on the Criminal Procedure Rules since its inception in 2004, and HHJ Roderick Denyer is a member of the Criminal Procedure Rules Committee.

This Guide provides a full, clear analysis of the new Rules, and places them in the context of recent changes to the law, notably the Criminal Justice Act 2003. Its logical style, following the structure of the Rules, and including checklists of time limits and key tasks to be performed, is an essential purchase for criminal practitioners, magistrates, and judges needing to get up to speed with the new procedural regime.
