This is a comprehensive guide to challenging decisions of criminal courts and public bodies in the criminal justice system using judicial review. Written by a team of criminal and public law practitioners, it considers claims for judicial review arising in the criminal justice system, which now represent a distinct area of public law. These claims are set apart by special considerations and rules; for example, on the limits of the High Court's jurisdiction or the availability of relief during ongoing proceedings. Criminal practitioners may lack the background to spot public law points. Equally, public law specialists may be unfamiliar with criminal law and types of issues that arise. Criminal Judicial Review is intended as a resource for both. The book deals with the principles, case law, remedies and, the practice and procedure for obtaining legal aid and costs. It will be of assistance to any practitioner preparing or responding to judicial review claims involving the following: - The Police and the Crown Prosecution Service. - Magistrates' courts, the Crown Court and Coroners. - Prisons and the Parole Board. - Statutory bodies such as the Independent Police Complaints Commission and the Legal Aid Agency. - Claimants who are children, young persons or have mental disorders. - The international dimension including extradition proceedings and European Union law. - Practical considerations such as CPR Part 54, remedies, legal aid and costs. From the Foreword by The Rt Hon Lord Judge "The book is offered in clear and simple style, focussing less on esoteric theoretical considerations and more on the practical needs of the practitioner. It brings together materials relating to public law with which a criminal specialist may be less well informed, and material relevant to the criminal justice processes which may not be immediately apparent to the public law specialist. It will assist with the preparation of arguments, and also enable submissions which are unarguable to be discarded. It will therefore provide valuable guidance in this broad and developing area of practice.??

Criminal Litigation is a comprehensive guide to the evidential and procedural rules and skills of criminal litigation and advocacy. The manual provides effective practice knowledge of the fundamental elements of criminal procedure, with an emphasis on client care issues. It discusses the role of the solicitor at all stages of the criminal process, where the case is disposed of in either the District Court or the Superior Courts. Procedure is explained from both a prosecution and a defence perspective, beginning with arrest and proceeding to trial and beyond, in a sequential manner that reflects the criminal justice process. The law on regulatory crime sometimes referred to as white collar or corporate crime is distinguished, at a time when legislation in this area is being enacted.

It is essential reading for trainee solicitors on the Professional Practice Course, and an excellent resource for Irish legal practitioners and other actors in the criminal justice system. Online Resource Centre Changes and developments in the area will be covered by regular updates to the Online Resource Centre.

American Criminal Courts: Legal Process and Social Context provides a complete picture of both the theory and day-to-day reality of criminal courts in the United States. The book begins by exploring how democratic processes affect criminal law, the documents that define law, the organizational structure of courts at the federal and state levels, the overlapping authority of the appeals process, and the effect of legal processes such as precedent, jurisdiction, and the underlying philosophies of various types of courts. In practice, criminal courts are staffed by people who represent different perspectives, occupational pressures, and organizational goals. Thus, this book includes chapters on actors in the traditional courtroom workgroup (judges, prosecutors, and defense attorneys, etc.) as well as those outside the court who seek to influence it, including advocacy groups, the media, and politicians. It is the interplay between the court's legal processes and the social actors in the courtroom that makes the application of criminal law fascinating. By focusing on the tension between the law and the actors inside of it, American Criminal Courts: Legal Process and Social Context demonstrates how the courts are a product of "law in action" and presents content in a way that enables you to understand not only the "how" of the U.S. criminal court system, but also the "why." Clearly explains both the principles underlying the development of criminal law and the practical reality of the court system in action A complete picture of the criminal justice continuum, including prosecution, defense, judges, juries, sentencing, and pre-trial and appeals processes Feature boxes look at how courts are portrayed in the media; identify landmark due-process cases; illustrate the pros and cons of the courts’ discretionary decision-making; examine procedures and the goals of justice; and highlight the various types of careers available within the criminal courts

Encompassing all the major fields of legal practice, Introduction to Turkish Law provides an essential understanding of the Turkish legal system, so that users can become familiar with law and legal processes in Turkey and pursue further research on specific Turkish legal matters. Twelve chapters, written by Turkish experts in their areas of specialty, focus on particular fields and provide also the Turkish equivalents of English terminology. The book covers the following topics: * sources of Turkish law; * constitutional law; * administrative law; * legal persons and business associations; * family and inheritance matters; * property; * obligations; * criminal law; and * the laws of civil and criminal procedure. The sixth edition reflects the continuing adaptation of Turkish law to international standards - especially in light of Turkey's hopes for membership in the European Union. These aspirations forced the Turkish lawmakers to modify some basic laws intensively or change them entirely. A short updated list of books and articles in English on Turkish law is appended.
