About Case Management in Criminal Trials

Since the first edition of this book - the first on the new system of case management in Crown Courts - much has happened, and the controversial and often misunderstood elements of case management have gradually evolved into a system which now appears to be having its intended effect. This book is designed to provide all those who work in the Crown Courts -judges, administrators, barristers and solicitors - with a one-stop guide to the day-to-day practical problems that arise both before and during trial. In particular it deals with all the problems that pre-trial case management can pose as well as those management type problems that can arise during the course of a trial such as problems with jurors, witnesses and absent defendants. It deals with all the main applications such as bad character disclosure and abuse of process. This is a unique and invaluable work of reference for all lawyers whose work brings them into contact with the Crown Court, as well as students studying for their Bar Finals.

“As a fan of the case management agenda I greatly welcome what is again a practical analysis of the current state of play. For those lawyers who are still generally confused, or in a state of denial, this book is essential reading. I would go as far as to say that this book should be a standard text on the LPC and bar professional training course.” –  Andrew Keogh, CrimeLine Updater, Issue 569

“This is a valuable "secondary" reference that may be consulted with profit on occasion by both the novice and the experienced trial manager.” –  Justice Gilles Renaud, Provincial Judges Journal, Volume 37, Number 1
