Criminal Litigation Handbook Summary

Criminal Litigation Handbook: 2010-2011 by Martin Hannibal

The Criminal Litigation Handbook offers a comprehensive and practical guide to the areas of criminal litigation covered on the Legal Practice Course. Making effective use of realistic case studies which are backed up by documentation online, the text combines theory with practical considerations and encourages students to focus on putting their knowledge into a practical context. Written in an informal and accessible style, the text covers all procedural and evidential issues that arise in criminal cases. The more complex areas of criminal litigation are examined using numerous diagrams, flowcharts, and examples while potential changes in the law are highlighted by specially designed 'Looking Ahead' boxes. Each chapter ends with a key point summary and self-test questions, enabling students to quickly sum up what they have read and test their own knowledge. Online Resource Centre The comprehensive Online Resource Centre offers vital support to students throughout their course. Updates are freely accessible to enable students to keep up to date with developments in the field, while links to other useful websites and legislation encourage students to explore the subject area fully. For students who are interested in pursuing police station accreditation as a qualification, an additonal online chapter which explores the practice and dynamics of police station practice is included online. To reflect the increasing importance of bad character evidence, a comprehensive case law compendium on bad character is also available online. An interactive time line will help you to see how the whole criminal litigation process fits together and the issues that you need to keep in mind at particular points. The timeline distinguishes between the three classifications of offences (summary-only; either-way and indictable-only). Lecturers are able to access video clips of fictional but realistic court proceedings which follow the case studies included in the text; documentation supporting these case studies is also provided via the site. Additional videos cover the procedure at the police station and sentencing in the Crown Court. Lecturers are also able to access a test bank of questions which provide an innovative way to assess students' understanding.
