Drink and Drug Drive Cases Notes
Many thousands of people are prosecuted each year for drink and drug driving offences. The legislation favours the prosecution in a number of ways, for example, by requiring those under investigation to give evidence against themselves in the form of specimens of breath, blood or urine, but also affords certain safeguards to suspects. The conviction rate is exceptionally high, and the provisions have given rise to a wealth of case law. Drink and Drug Drive Case Notes comprises summaries of the many cases on drink driving, and the fewer cases on drug driving, which have come before the High Court, the Court of Appeal, the House of Lords and, in one instance, the Supreme Court. Over six hundred judgments are summarised. Each note is presented as a short statement of the facts of the case, the question(s) put to the appeal court and an extract from the judgment. The notes are intended to provide a broad outline of the trends in the case law and as starting points for readers seeking guidance on particular issues. This third edition includes notes of some seventy-five cases decided since the second edition was published. Themes running through the new cases include the interpretation of the provisions on reasonable cause to believe that the breath analysis device has not produced a reliable indication of the suspect's breath alcohol level, and on the application of the Criminal Procedure Rules to proceedings for drink and drug driving. At the time of publication, the so-called statutory option has just been removed, and section 5A of the Road Traffic Act 1988, creating new offences of driving, attempting to drive, and in charge, with a concentration of a specified controlled drug above a specified limit, has come into force. The offences are framed in much the same terms of the excess alcohol offences, but testing will be by the analysis of blood or urine only. While much of the case law concerning drink-driving will be relevant, the new provisions will no doubt give rise to their own body of case law in due time. Drink and Drug Drive Case Notes was first published, as Drink Drive Case Notes, as a product of collaboration between Lion Laboratories - the manufacturers of much of the breath-testing equipment used in the UK and throughout the world - and the author. This expanded and updated edition of Drink and Drug Drive Case Notes will prove a useful reference for police, prosecutors, defenders and legal advisers. As a reference guide, this is an extremely helpful addition to a legal adviser's kitbag. The Justices' Clerk, of the first edition [A]n extremely useful complement to any standard text book on drink driving matters. I would commend it not only to defence lawyers but also to those who prosecute in this area of law. Solicitors Journal, of the second edition

Wildy's Handbook for Magistrates
Wildy's Handbook for Magistrates (previously published as Blackstone's Handbook for Magistrates) is a readable and comprehensive account of the work of magistrates in England and Wales. It examines how magistrates are appointed; what they are empowered to do; how their courts are organised and operated; the kinds of matters they deal with - crimes such as theft and assault, traffic offences and issues concerning children and families; how they go about assessing evidence and deciding what to accept as true; how they decide whether defendants should be released on bail or kept in custody; the sentences they may impose and how they endeavour to make the punishment fit the crime. The book also looks at how legal aid works, a subject of continuing public and political concern. Last, but not least, it gives a flavour of what life as a magistrate is really like, touching on the pressures, responsibilities and rewards of the work. This new edition reflects the many changes introduced over recent years. These include revisions to the procedure for applying to become a magistrate and the training requirements; the introduction of the Criminal Procedure Rules, case management and other measures to reduce delay; the landmark Courts Act 2003; amendments to the Bail Act; and wholesale revision of the approach to sentencing. The authors, one a deputy justices' clerk, the other a serving magistrate, bring two different, but equally important, areas of experience and expertise to the work and explain complicated concepts in a straightforward manner, keeping legal jargon to a minimum. ...a welcome addition to the list of appropriate books for magistrates and prospective magistrates. It is aimed not only at newly appointed members of the bench, but will also be of considerable interest and assistance to those with more experience...there is a great deal of support for magistrates in this handbook. It will also be of interest to other court users including legal advisers and probations staff. This is a thorough and carefully researched work ... From a review of previous edition in The Magistrate Magistrates old, new and prospective will gain much from this book...The authors have succeeded in providing a wide-ranging account of the work of lay magistrates. A lucid explanation of a magistrate's work and duties is found in this book. The text is written with the non-lawyer in mind. From a review of previous edition in New Law Journal
