This book is not intended as an academic treatise on criminal law nor the law of evidence. It is designed instead to assist all those who work in the Crown Court in dealing with the day-to-day practical problems that arise both before and during trial.
In particular it is deals with all the problems that pre-trial case management can pose as well as those management type problems that can arise during the course of a trial such as problems with jurors witnesses and absent defendants.
It deals with all the main applications such as bad character disclosure and abuse of process. As such it will be an invaluable vade mecum for barristers and solicitors appearing in the Crown Court, officers of the Court, Circuit judges, and members of the CPS whose work brings them into daily contact with the Court.
