    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
    New to this edition

    Advanced Criminal Litigation has been updated to reflect recent significant developments in case law
    New offences relating to inciting hatred on the grounds of sexual orientation are covered to provide the reader with an up-to-date knowledge on current procedure
    Specifically designed and written for use on the advanced criminal litigation option on the Bar Professional Training Course, this manual adopts a pragmatic approach to its treatment of criminal law and focuses specifically on those areas of criminal law which are most important to the junior criminal practitioner and which they are most likely to encounter during their first years in practice.

    Split into three distinct parts, the first part of the manual deals with the crucial procedural aspects of criminal law which will be encountered in practice, including the scope of legal powers to enter and search premises, and abuse of process. Part II covers selected areas of the substantive law, which are particularly relevant to the junior practitioner, including public order offences, dangerous drugs, offensive weapons, and drink driving and road traffic offences. The final section features an extended case study focusing on features which the practitioner will commonly encounter in practice, including police witnesses, custody records and conflicts of interest between defendants. Including realistic case papers and typical exhibits, this section also features a set of tasks to perform and a sample answer offering trainee barristers the opportunity to practice applying their skills in a criminal litigation context.

    This new edition has been updated to reflect significant developments in case law and in particular, the title has been revised to include new offences relating to inciting hatred on the grounds of sexual orientation.

    Readership: Students undertaking an elective module in advanced criminal litigation as part of the Bar Professional Training Course.
