Anyone practising in the criminal courts needs to have a sound grasp of both evidence and procedure. This text seeks to provide the criminal lawyer with access to the key points of these inter-related subjects. It is divided into two parts. Part A deals with evidence, while Part B covers procedure. It contains the text of the most important statutory provisions, together with a commentary.
This second edition features new chapters on disclosure (covering the Criminal Procedure and Investigations Act 1996), Committal for Trial and the European Context. The impact of the Human Rights Act 1998 is examined and the crucial portions of the statute are provided. The Crime (Sentences) Act 1997, the provisions on surveillance in the Police Act 1997, the procedural aspects of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 and the developments based on the Youth Justice and Criminal Evidence Act 1999 are all covered.
The most important provisions of the Codes of Practice under PACE, the Code of Practice on Disclosure, and the European Convention on Human Rights are reproduced in appendix form.
