Following the style and approach of Archbold for the Crown Court, with expert and detailed coverage of both substantive law and the practice and procedure of the courts, Archbold Magistrates’ Courts Criminal Practice provides a ‘one-stop shop’ for magistrates’ courts procedure.

Completely selfcontained, it provides all the information needed for prosecuting, defending or trying criminal offences in the magistrates’ court, as well as dealing with procedural matters prior to trial in the Crown Court.
