Criminal law & justice weekly

The journal Justice of the Peace is re-launched this month as Criminal law & justice weekly. Since first being published in 1837, it has covered the many changes affecting magistrates’ courts and the legal profession in England and Wales.

The re-launched journal will continue to provide a useful resource for criminal law.  New and enhanced sections include :-

  • Stone’s update : regular updates providing expert analysis and commentary on cases and legislation from Stone’s justices’ manual
  • JP Reporter : case digests and judgments provided by leading experts
  • Foundations : news and information from criminal justice agencies
  • Discussion Point : a mix of views and opinions on contentious issues in criminal law
  • Justice Worldwide : the latest news on the global application of the rule of law and key projects and developments in the criminal justice system from around the globe.
