Now in its fourteenth edition, A Practical Approach to Criminal Procedure provides a complete guide to the criminal process in England and Wales.

It explains what happens before the accused appears in court, the way in which prosecutions are commenced, funding by the criminal defence service, and bail. It describes proceedings in the magistrates' court, including summary trial and committal for sentence, as well as the way in which the youth court operates.

Committal and transfer for trial are clearly explained and the process by which serious offences are sent direct to the Crown Court is also studied. Trial on indictment is discussed in detail, as are sentencing and appeals.

This new edition has been fully updated to incorporate recent developments in the field. In particular, attention is paid to the changes resulting from the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act, as well as to recent Sentencing Guidelines. Changes to the PACE codes are also considered in detail. Very much a practical guide, this title makes frequent use of examples, flowcharts, and tables, and is specifically designed to assist the busy professional and student.

A Practical Approach to Criminal Procedure is an indispensable resource for those working in this field. The A Practical Approach series is the perfect partner for practice work. Each title focuses on one field of the law and provides a comprehensive overview of the subject together with clear, practical advice and tips on issues likely to arise in practice.

The books are also an excellent resource for those new to the law, where the expert overview and clear layout promote ease of understanding.
