It explains what happens before the accused appears in court, the way in which prosecutions are commenced, funding by the criminal defence service, and bail. It describes proceedings in the magistrates' court, including summary trial and committal for sentence, as well as the way in which the youth court operates.

Trial on indictment is discussed in detail, as are sentencing and appeals. This new edition has been fully updated to incorporate recent developments in the field. In particular, attention is paid to the changes resulting from the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act, as well as to recent Sentencing Guidelines.

A Practical Approach to Criminal Procedure is an indispensable resource for those working in this field. The A Practical Approach series is the perfect partner for practice work. Each title focuses on one field of the law and provides a comprehensive overview of the subject together with clear, practical advice and tips on issues likely to arise in practice.
