Blackstone's Police Manuals 2016, endorsed by the College of Policing, are the only official study guides for the NPPF Step Two Legal Examination (formerly OSPRE(R) Part I). Straightforward and accessible, Blackstone's Police Manuals are the only resource used by question writers when preparing an NPPF Step Two Legal Examination and each of the four volumes forms part of the only comprehensive version of the 2016 syllabus. Blackstone's Police Manual Volume 2: Evidence and Procedure 2016 covers areas including Bail, Disclosure of Evidence, Youth Justice, Crime and Disorder, and Court Procedure and Witnesses, as well as PACE Codes C, D, E, F, and H. For complex or commonly misunderstood areas, there are handy Keynote boxes, which point to relevant case law or provide an example of how material is used in a practical sense, helping you to establish the connections between legislation and police procedure. The 2016 edition has been updated to incorporate all recent legislative developments and case law, including amendments to the Criminal Justice and Courts Act 2015, the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, the Criminal Procedure Rules 2015, and revised PACE Codes C and H (June 2014).

The second edition of this book maintains the author's original objective: to provide a clear and readable account of evidence law, which acknowledges the importance of arguments about facts and principles as well as rules. It is written for those studying for degrees in law or for professional examinations.
This book has been written with two aims. The first is to help students who wish to revise particular topics in evidence law. It should be especially helpful because it emphasizes those aspects of each topic which are of key importance, and which for some may have seemed obscured behind a mass of detail. The second aim is to show by example how to write good answers to questions in evidence examinations. In particular, the book shows the importance of a practical approach which requires that a student should think as carefully about the facts as about the law. This fourth edition incorporates all recent changes including the Youth Justice and Criminal Evidence Act 1999.
"Routledge-Cavendish Core Statutes" provide a comprehensive series of essential statutory provisions for the core subjects and major options on the LLB or GDL. Each book in the series: provides the precise wording of Acts of Parliament and is unannotated, making it ideal for both course and exam use; is updated annually to incorporate all of the latest legislation covered in most UK law syllabi; features consolidated amendments, avoiding the need to cross-refer to amending legislation; and contains detailed contents listings and comprehensive index for ease of navigation and research.
The current law governing the admissibility of expert evidence in criminal trials is unsatisfactory. If the reliability of expert evidence is in question, there are no clear guide lines for determining whether or not it is sufficiently trustworthy to be considered by the jury. In this consultation paper, the Law Commission makes provisional proposals for reform and poses some questions for consultees. Expert evidence, particularly scientific evidence, can have a very persuasive effect on juries. It is vital that such evidence should be used only if it provides a sound basis for determining a defendant's guilt or innocence. There have been miscarriages of justice in recent years where prosecution expert evidence of doubtful reliability has been placed before Crown Court juries. There may also have been unwarranted acquittals attributable to such evidence. The Commission wants to ensure that the criminal courts have the means to authenticate expert evidence and be satisfied that the information before them is sound. It therefore proposes a new test for determining whether expert evidence should be admitted in a criminal trial. It also recommends new guidelines for Crown Court judges and magistrates' courts to help them determine whether expert evidence is sufficiently reliable to be admitted.
The Cavendish LawCards cover the broad range of subjects available on the undergraduate law programme, as well as on the CPE/Diploma in Law course. Each one is a complete, pocket-sized guide to key examinable areas of the law syllabus. The concise text, user-friendly layout and compact format make them useful revision aids for identifying, understanding and committing to memory the salient points of each topic.
