Reflecting the academic rigour and practical application of Sir Gerald's work, this volume includes essays on criminal law theory, substantive law and evidence and procedure by practitioners and academics within and outside of Scotland, including contributions from England, Ireland and the USA.

Key Features: *chapters encompass a broad range of subjects of contemporary interest and significance *both substantive and procedural criminal law *contributors from practitioners and academics from both within and outwith Scotland, reflecting the influence and recognition afforded to Sir Gerald's work.
