Comprehensive coverage of the practice and procedure of the Crown Court is just one of the reasons why Archbold: Criminal Pleading, Evidence and Practice is the best choice for those working in criminal law.

The 2015 edition has been fully revised and updated with new legislation, case law, SIs, practice directions and guidelines by the team of expert editors.

  • Supplement 3 was published in July 2015
  • Supplement 2 was published in March 2015
  • The Main Work & Supplement 1 was published in November 2014
Here are just a few reasons why Archbold is the choice of your peers:
  • Archbold is divided into logical sections using a consistent set of headings and sub-headings. It includes thousands of cross-references and is fully indexed, lightening the burden of research
  • It concentrates on what the law is, rather than what it ought to be, covering both substantive law and the practice and procedure of the Crown Court
  • With 190 years’ authority informing every page, Archbold is the reference work to cite in court, adding weight and credibility to your arguments
  • Separate chapters cover each indictable offence in depth, from forgery to murder, enhancing your understanding of the crimes relevant to your current cases
  • We don’t believe you want to wade through impenetrable text. To that end, Archbold is written in straightforward language and short paragraphs
  • Updated three times a year and supplemented by Archbold Review, Archbold keeps you abreast of the latest developments in criminal law, from case law to new Statutory Instruments
  • The service now includes the Archbold e-update which provides you with a weekly email containing the latest, relevant updates in crime. Cross-referenced through paragraph to the mainwork, the e-update will allow you to contextualise the information within Archbold. What’s more, the content will be archived online so you have access to it anytime
