Are you appealing from the Crown Court or the Court of Appeal?
The Criminal Appeals Handbook, Second Edition is THE ‘how to’ guide to appealing from the Crown Court to the Court of Appeal and beyond, to assist those who seek to challenge a conviction or sentence imposed in the Crown Court.
In short, concise chapters this book describes each stage of the appeals process and introduces the reader to the language, law and procedure of pursuing an appeal. It presents ways of investigating what may have gone wrong and what resources and funding is available through legal aid, in order to identify potential grounds of appeal. In addition it provides an overview of interlocutory appeals, responding to prosecution appeals and considering the position of defendants who suffer from mental disorders. It follows the process through to the conclusion of the case in the Court of Appeal, and beyond, covering appeal to the Supreme Court, the Criminal Case Review Commission, and international remedies through the ECtHR and UNHRC.
