Criminal Litigation

Fourth 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 manual is a comprehensive reference guide for trainee solicitors and practitioners alike: it incorporates and normalises regulatory crime into general criminal litigation practice, extending its coverage to European perspectives, client care in the context of the management of a criminal practice, and solicitor advocate skills

New to this Edition:

  • Extensively revised existing chapters and a new chapter on victims' rights in Ireland, incorporating the Victims' Rights Directive
  • Covers recent changes with respect to advising advising clients in Garda custody, forensic and DNA evidence, bail application processes and suspended sentences
