EU Criminal Procedure

A general defence practitioner’s guide

Many lawyers will be familiar with the European arrest warrant and assume that EU criminal law is for specialists. In fact, EU activity has expanded into all areas of procedure, from bail through to custody and almost everything in between. These measures are slowly coming into force throughout the EU and we are now beginning to see their impact.

EU Criminal Procedure introduces the EU in a simple and accessible way so that busy practitioners can get to grips with what they need to know quickly. It summarises the relevant legislation and issues arising, providing essential materials in the annex. The guide aims to equip practitioners with the information necessary to grapple with these measures as they arise.
