Adams on Criminal Law addresses the whole field of New Zealand’s criminal law from beginning to end. Adams is the work of a team of distinguished Judges and lawyers and places substantial emphasis on the practical aspects of criminal law. The current edition is the third of a line which began with Sir Francis Adams’ Criminal Law and Practice in New Zealand in 1964, followed by the second edition in 1971, and publication of the latest edition in 1991. The work includes “offences” legislation and extensive commentary on the Courts’ interpretation of these. Material relating to the criminal investigation process forms a substantial part, with chapters on evidence, trial procedure, the New Zealand Bill of Rights Act, blood sampling and DNA testing. Adams on Criminal Law is an indispensable, practical guide for defence, prosecution, corporate lawyers, the judiciary, police, academics and students. ACCURATE All information, cases and legislation is rigorously checked by our team of legally-qualified editors and researchers. CURRENT Continued consolidation of legislation and replacement of outdated commentary provides a continually up-to-date view of New Zealand criminal law and procedure; RELIABLE First published in 1991, it is a highly regarded legal text. EASE-OF-USE Organised around the main legislation with extensive cross-referencing.
