Course Description

This two-day seminar is designed for judges sitting in the Crown Court.

The aim of this seminar is to inform judges of relevant provisions of Community law and their increasing effect on domestic criminal jurisprudence, to help judges to increase and apply their knowledge of the criminal procedure rules and to deliver a summing up.

The European modules will consist of lectures on relevant law together with practical exercises in syndicates. The case management and summing-up modules will include lectures on the Criminal Procedure Rules and Crown Court Bench Book together with syndicate exercises, allowing judges to practise relevant skills.

The seminar covers three distinct topics:
• Aspects of criminal law relating to the European Community and European criminal law
• Case Management
• Summing-up
