Announced as Criminal Advocacy
This book deals with the real practicalities of getting results in the Magistrates' Court. It looks at who's who at court, and who holds what information, where forms are kept and how to fill them in.

This new edition contains practical guidance which until now has been hard to find in other publications for example: How to get bail How to argue for separate representation What should you be looking for in disclosure A digest of jargon and shorthand used by the police, CPS and court staff.

Advocacy in the Magistrates' Court is an excellent tool for Barristers and Solicitors who need to become accomplished at practising in the Magistrates' Court.
