The Special Criminal Court: Practice and Procedure cover


The Special Criminal Court: Practice and Procedure compiles procedural and evidential rules in a coherent and accessible way together with a comprehensive analysis of the offences typically tried before SCC. In light of the fact that the Special Criminal Court is a creature of statute the procedural rules are extraordinarily specific and this title sets these out in a comprehensive and articulate manner so that they are accessible and useful to the practitioner. A relevant body of case law that has built up over the years is also examined in this title including decisions of the Irish courts as well as relevant decisions of the European Court of Human Rights.
