This work provides a full and systematic analysis of the impact of UK human rights law on both the substantive criminal law and criminal procedure. Written by the leading authorities on the subject it offers definitive guidance.

It examines first the applicable human rights principles before moving on to consider their impact on specific areas, including the investigation of crime, court procedure, evidence, standards of proof, sentencing, appeals and the rights of victims. Coverage includes detailed analysis of the practical impact of the Human Rights Act, especially the extensive case law.

  • The definitive guide for UK criminal practitioners showing how their work is affected by Human Rights considerations
  • Combines highly practical guidance on specific aspects of law and practice with analysis of theory and principles
  • Incorporates the wealth of recent case law from the UK and Strasbourg courts
