The Administration of Criminal Justice in England and Wales outlines in simple language what takes place in trial courts in England and Wales. This book focuses on the administration of justice in England and Wales, which is divided into three categories— magistrates' courts, Quarter Sessions, and Assizes. The fundamental difference between these categories is that trials in magistrates' courts take place before a bench of magistrates, a stipendiary or metropolitan magistrate, while Quarter Sessions or Assizes are trials by jury. The topics discussed include the magistrates' courts; transition from magistrates' courts to Quarter Sessions and Assize courts; jurors; trial by jury–Quarter Sessions; and after-trial duties–appeals to court of criminal appeal. A table of the courts engaged in administering criminal law is provided after the introduction of this text. This publication is a good reference for students aiming to become practicing barristers, solicitors, members of the Assize courts staff, clerks of the peace, or justices' clerks.
