The purpose of Criminal Procedure in Hong Kong is to provide students and practitioners with a guide to the rules of criminal procedure in Hong Kong.

Each stage of the criminal process is examined with reference to the relevant statutory provisions and case law, from initial investigative powers to indictment, trial and appeal. Explanation of trial procedures and jurisdictions in all three courts of first instance; the Magistrates Court, the District Court and the Court of First Instance are included.

Separate chapters detail the law relating to costs in criminal cases and the procedure on appeals. This book also considers the various sentencing dispositions available to the courts and provides guidance as to how to propose a realistic sentence.

The second edition of this book has been updated to include new developments and recent case law, and now also includes the full text of relevant Practice Directions. It is intended as both a text for law students in Hong Kong and a handy reference guide for practitioners seeking to resolve the various questions of procedure which arise in criminal practice
