The origin of this new book lies in the case of Anderson v HM Advocate in 1996. The initial focus being the appeal process and the availability of defective representation at the trial stage as a competent ground of appeal alleging a miscarriage of justice. The effect of the decision combined with later cases was to change the nature and style of criminal advocacy in the courts.

This is an essential text for anybody dealing in criminal law who wishes to avoid claims of defective representation. As complaints about representation give rise to questions as to what ought to have been done, some consideration is given to traditional advice on the art of advocacy.
