Australian Criminal Trial Directions

This one volume commentary work is designed specifically as a manual for trial counsel and one of the first of its kind in Australia. Whether prosecuting or defending, the work enables you to identify and make submissions upon the correct directions to be given to juries. However, it will be equally useful in magistrates or summary courts. For this reason, it is an essential tool for judges and magistrates in order to ensure they apply the correct law. The work is also a useful guide to substantive law relating to trial practice and procedure and is intended as a first reference guide for barristers.
