The CLSA Duty Solicitors' Handbook is the only book to provide complete coverage of procedure in both the police station and magistrates' court . Recommended by the Criminal Law Solicitors' Association, the text is essential reading for anyone wanting to obtain or retain duty solicitor status under the Criminal Litigation Accreditation Scheme.
This updated and expanded second edition has greater emphasis on sentencing, magistrates' court procedures and anti-social behaviour orders. It includes details of the very latest legislative changes, including: - Magistrates' Association sentencing guidelines - key guideline cases including Kefford, Ghafoor, Oliver and McInerney reproduced for full citation in court - new PACE Codes of Practice reproduced in full - updated to reflect changes to the general criminal contract - new section on funding of criminal cases - enhanced coverage of anti-social behaviour orders, youth court procedure, bail and magistrates' court procedures - convention rights - all the important cases of the last 12 months.
Rather than being an exhaustive guide to criminal procedure, the book provides a readily accessible reference to the common issues which can and do arise in the early hours of the morning when the comforts of the office and a law library are but distant memories.
