Review from previous edition I shall want rarely to be without it. As a Resident Judge I am regularly dealing with the interface between the Crown Court and the Magistrates' Court. I often find myself groping for information about the regular practice and procedure in the Magistrates' Court. It has until now been difficult to find help consistently in any one place * HHJ Peter Collier QC * Review from previous editionAn excellent covers virtually every area of law and procedure you may encounter in the magistrates' court. Even better - it is handbag sized! * Natasha McDermott, Managing Partner, Carters Solicitors * Review from previous edition Easy to read and not only extremely useful for advocates but could be a vital quick reference document for legal advisors and magistrates * John Thornhill JP, The Magistrate *
