This brand-new SULI title written by Professor Pamela Ferguson comprehensively explores the law and practice of criminal procedure from the point at which a person is suspected of having committed an offence, to the final verdict of the court.

Connecting both theory and practice, its unique approach is both descriptive—explaining how Scottish criminal procedure operates, and normative—suggesting how it ought to operate.
