The UK's new Human Rights Act with its duty to give domestic effect to the European Convention on Human Rights and the jurisprudence of the Strasbourg court will have a significant effect on many aspects of the criminal and regulatory process. The papers in this volume,arising from the second Cambridge Centre for Public Law conference consider the Act's impact on investigation and surveillance, on evidence, procedure and the substantive law applied at trials and hearings, and at the post-trial stage e.g. sentencing and post-report action in respect of DTI Inspection. Contributions from many of the country's leading criminal and regulatory lawyers (both academic and practising) make this volume an important and original source for all criminal lawyers.
