"The fundamental text on the subject" – New Law Journal
This book provides a full and systematic analysis of the impact of UK human rights law on both the substantive criminal law and criminal procedure. It examines first the applicable human rights principles before moving on to consider their impact on specific areas, including the investigation of crime, court procedure, evidence, standards of proof, sentencing, appeals and the rights of victims. Human Rights and Criminal Justice:
  • Combines analysis of theory and principles with practical guidance
  • Deals in turn with the practical impact of human rights principles on each area of criminal practice
  • Examines how the courts have interpreted the Human Rights Act 1998 in practice
  • Fully updated to include analysis of the most recent cases
  • Contains new chapters on anti-terrorism and on prisons and the administration of sentences
  • Incorporates important new material into the section on investigative process
  • Reproduces relevant statutory material ensuring this key information is readily to hand.
