  • Builds up students existing knowledge of the criminal law to provide detailed coverage of those areas of substantive criminal law, such as public order and road traffic offences, that the junior practitioner is most likely to encounter in the first years of practice
  • Includes full coverage of the key procedural rules applicable in criminal cases, ensuring that the junior practitioner is equipped with all the necessary knowledge required to comply with crucial procedural requirements in practice
  • Adopts a highly pragmatic approach to the subject through the inclusion of an extended case study section containing a realistic set of papers for a trial in prospect, including witness statements and police custody records, which offers the reader an opportunity to practise the skills they will need to utilise when preparing their own cases in practice
  • Further reading sections featured at the end of selected chapters direct students to relevant additional sources and encourages independent exploration of the subject
