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.

"Volume 3 of the International Criminal Law Practitioner Library completes the review of international criminal law begun in Volumes 1 and 2, which analyse the forms of responsibility and the elements of the core crimes. This volume reviews the procedural law and practices of the international criminal tribunals from investigation to trial, appeal, and punishment, and examines the framework within which the substantive law operates. The authors present a critical study of those procedures that are essential to effective investigations and fair trials, and explore how the ICC, ICTY, and ICTR - as well as the SCSL and other internationalised tribunals, where relevant - have shaped the evolution of international criminal procedure in order to meet new challenges and changing circumstances. The key jurisprudence and rule amendments up to 1 December 2009 have been surveyed, making this a highly relevant and timely work"--

Criminal Fair Trial Rights

The Article 6 fair trial rights are the most heavily-litigated Convention rights before the European Court of Human Rights, generating a large and complex body of case law. With this book, Goss provides an innovative and critical analysis of the European Court's Article 6 case law. The category of 'fair trial rights' includes many component rights. The existing literature tends to chart the law with respect to each of these component rights, one by one. This traditional approach is useful, but it risks artificially isolating the case law in a series of watertight compartments. This book takes a complementary but different approach. Instead of analysing the component rights one by one, it takes a critical look at the case law through a number of 'cross-cutting' problems and themes common to all or many of the component rights. For example: how does the Court view its role in Article 6 cases? When will the Court recognise an implied right in Article 6? How does the Court assess Article 6 infringements, and when will the public interest justify an infringement? The book's case-law-driven approach allows Goss to demonstrate that the European Court's criminal fair trial rights jurisprudence is marked by considerable uncertainty, inconsistency, and incoherence.
