Magistrates’ Courts Criminal Practice combines authority and practicality, providing step-by-step advice on a vast array of court procedures from cautions and commencements through to appeals, including a thorough treatment of the law and practice of evidence as it relates to the magistrates’ courts.

Magistrates’ Courts Criminal Practice has been described as providing ‘razor sharp analysis’, ‘clarity’ and ‘ease of reference’, enabling practitioners to ‘check the essential legal features surrounding the case before the court with the minimum of fuss’.

In addition to the authors’ commentary, there is a comprehensive selection of up-to-date statutes, statutory instruments, rules, practice directions and other materials.

Uniquely, there is a section setting out the elements of over 150 offences, providing the statutory definitions and relevant case-law, and over 100 procedural guides provide a step-by-step summary of the main procedures supported by references to the legislative framework and case-law.
