Criminal Litigation is a comprehensive guide to the criminal justice process in Ireland and its evidential and procedural rules. It profiles the obligations of the state and the rights of the accused at all stages of the trial process for summary and indictable crime, at all court levels, in a framework that reflects the criminal justice process from arrest to trial and beyond. Effective practice knowledge is linked with regulatory crime, juvenile justice, road traffic offences, the ECHR, and European Arrest Warrants.

The book's content has been extensively revised for the fourth edition, and it now includes a new chapter on victims' rights in Ireland, incorporating the Victims' Rights Directive. It also takes into account recent changes with respect to advising clients in Garda custody, forensic and DNA evidence, bail application processes and suspended sentences.

Criminal Litigation is essential reading for trainee solicitors studying this subject on the Professional Practice Course and an excellent resource for Irish legal practitioners and other actors in the criminal justice system.
