Overview

Criminal Litigation and Sentencing provides a comprehensive, analytical and up-to-date guide to each step of the criminal process; from the arrest of the suspect through to trial, sentencing and appeals. Full account is taken of both statutory and case law developments and the book is supported by a Companion Website which provides regular updates to the caselaw and statutory developments in this fast-moving area.


Key aspects of criminal procedure and sentencing are analysed in the light of sources such as Government consultation papers and academic commentary. This book provides an excellent introduction to criminal procedure and sentencing for anyone studying the criminal process as part of an LLB or LLM degree, for students on the Bar Vocational Course or Legal Practice Course, and anyone who is involved in the operation of the criminal justice system or who is interested in how the system works.
