Guiding practitioners and non-practitioners through the process from beginning to end, The Protest Handbook is presented in five clear chapters that relate to each stage of a potential case. The chapters include practical assistance in line with protesters’ experience of attending demonstrations, the chronological structure of a case, relevant areas of substantive law in sections that cover groups of similar offences, the topical issue of the law relating to occupations and remedies available where protesters’ rights have been infringed.
