An exceptional series of seminars on criminal justice and human rights held in 1994 has given rise to this volume of essays. The contributors, among them distinguished members of the judiciary and respected academics, have produced a set of vigorous and topical essays which will be essential reading for anyone concerned about criminal law, the future direction of the British criminal justice system, and the currently evolving changes in the position of the law on the critical areas of freedom of speech and expression.
