Recent legislation, case law and practice have brought about significant and controversial developments for the legal profession when advising and representing offenders. In particular, the new drug courts have been introduced. In response to these changes, Fiona MacDonald has written Representing Drug Offenders, a functional, user-friendly guide on how to conduct practical and effective cases in the Scottish courts. Representing Drug Offenders deals with procedure from taking instructions to attending at the pleading diet, preparation for the intermediate and trial diet, including representation at the trial. Checklists and flowcharts are included detailing what information to look for until it becomes second nature to you.
