Blackstone's Criminal Practice 2019 - Main Volume and Supplement 1 Only


A statement from Lord Justice Hickinbottom (Chair, Judicial Library Committee)

Following a survey of all Resident Judges in 2016, the decision was taken centrally to provide Blackstone’s Criminal Practice in every Crown courtroom in England & Wales. Previously, each court centre determined whether to order and use Blackstone or Archbold. Judges continued to be able to access both works online and use their personal allowances to buy books of their choosing. At the time, it was made clear that this decision would be reviewed at a later date.

Over the last eighteen months the judiciary and the Judicial Library Service have worked closely with Oxford University Press and Thomson Reuters to provide input into the forthcoming editions of each of the works. I am now pleased to confirm that, as a result of discussions with OUP and Thomson Reuters, for the forthcoming legal year, every Crown courtroom will be provided with one copy of each book. This will enable us to conduct a meaningful review, which will inform the decision on which book will be provided from October 2019.

I encourage all criminal judges to consult and make use of both publications, whether online or in print, prior to the review which is expected to be undertaken in Spring 2019. The Judicial Library Committee will now begin work on how best to conduct the review, and further information on the content and format will be issued in due course.

This new edition has been meticulously revised to provide extensive coverage of all new legislation, case law, and Practice Directions.
