Criminal Litigation

Third Edition

Edited by Maura Butler

Law Society of Ireland Manuals

  • Criminal Litigation offers a detailed, step-by-step overview of the criminal justice process, taking readers through the Irish criminal justice system in a sequential manner that reflects the journey of an accused person from arrest to case cessation
  • Written by authors from both prosecution and defence who daily find themselves at the coalface of criminal advocate practice, the manual focuses on the implementation of legislation and case law in a real world practitioner environment, helping students make the transition from theoretical criminal law to the realities of practice
  • The book incorporates and normalises regulatory crime into general criminal litigation practice and extends its coverage to European perspectives, client care in the context of the management of a criminal practice, and solicitor advocate skills, making it a comprehensive reference guide for trainee solicitors and practitioners alike
  • Criminal Litigation is part of the successful Law Society of Ireland Manuals series, which provides a unique guide to the law, practice and procedure in Ireland

New to this Edition:

  • Ten extensively re-written and updated chapters
  • New chapters on regulatory crime and the European arrest warrant procedure
  • Greatly extended chapter on bail law
  • Practical focus on the procedural application of evidential rules, explored in depth through two case studies in the Evidence chapter
