Joel Bennathan QC’s new Criminal Appeals handbook published by Bloomsbury

Bloomsbury has published a new Criminal Appeals Handbook, authored by Joel Bennathan QC, and solicitors Daniel Jones and Greg Stewart.  The Handbook provides practical assistance to legal representatives of clients who are seeking to challenge convictions or sentences in the Court of Appeal and beyond.  It will also be of interest to those convicted and their families by assisting them to understand the process, their rights and their options.


It addresses how to obtain advice including funding for advice and assistance legal aid, potential grounds of appeal, lodging, etc. and follows the process through to the conclusion of the case in the Court of Appeal.  The book also includes a  section on Appeal to the Supreme Court followed by reference to the Criminal Case Review Commission, then finally international remedies (ECtHR and UNHRC). 

This new publication aims, above all, to be a practical and user-friendly companion for navigating the increasingly complex field of criminal appeals. Priced at £50, it will also suit the budget of most with an interest in this area.
