The Criminal Litigation Handbook offers a comprehensive and pratical guide to the areas of criminal litigation covered in the Legal Practice Course.

Making effective use of realistic case studies which are backed up by documentation online, the text combines theory with practical considerations and encourages students to focus on putting their knowledge into a practical context. Written in an informal and accessible style, the text covers all procedural and evidential issues that arise in criminal cases.

The more complex areas of criminal litigation are examined using numerous diagrams, flowcharts, and examples, while potential changes in the law are highlighted by specially designed "Looking Ahead" boxes. Each chapter ends with a key point summary and self-test questions, enabling students to quickly sum up what they have read and test their own knowledge.
