About The Special Criminal Court: Practice and Procedure

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.

“The author has considered the court, and the voluminous jurisprudence relating to it, from every conceivable angle. There are chapters devoted to the historical and political background, and to the various (and largely unsuccessful) challenges to the Offences against the State regime. Every legal point and practice direction has been painstakingly pored over. In addition, the author has gathered material that is not readily accessible elsewhere: to give the most comprehensive overview she has sourced transcripts of trials and newspaper reports so that key ex tempore rulings are drawn together most usefully.” –  Rebecca Coen, Irish Jurist, Vol LXV
