Provides students and junior barristers, as well as solicitor advocates, with a practical understanding of advocacy in the criminal court. It is set out chronologically following the life of the case from first conference to appeal against conviction in the CA, with references to procedure, codes of conduct, key cases, and forms. Each chapter follows a similar format. The emphasis is very much on practical advice, with do's and don'ts along with mock situations and good practice boxes.

This is an ideal text for the junior bar and solicitor-advocates who do not attend court on a regular basis. It also serves as a useful aide memoir for pupil masters on what they should mention or advise their pupils to do, and indeed not to do, in hearings.
