Emmins on Criminal Procedure Summary

Emmins on Criminal Procedure by Christopher J. Emmins

Emmins on Criminal Procedure provides a clear, practical and authoritative account of the criminal process. It explains what happens before the accused appears in court, the way in which prosecutions are commenced, funding by the criminal defence service, and bail. It describes proceedings in the magistrates' court, including summary trial and committal for sentence, as well as the way in which the youth court operates. Committal and transfer for trial are clearly explained and the process by which serious offences are sent direct to the Crown Court is also studied. Trial on indictment is discussed in detail as are sentencing and appeals. The ninth edition contains an updated chapter on 'The European Dimension' which deals with the impact of the European Court of Human Rights on criminal procedure in England and Wales. The book also summarizes the proposals laid out in the Auld review of the criminal courts and extracts of this important report are included in the appendices. The book is divided into five parts covering the major elements of criminal procedure: preliminaries; the magistrates' court; the Crown Court; sentencing; and appeals. It is a useful reference for the busy practitioner and essential reading for students preparing for professional examinations.
