The Criminal Appeal Act 1995 has significantly changed the way in which criminal appeals will be dealt with in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Its wide-ranging provisions affect not only proceedings in the appellate courts but are also directed towards the creation of the Criminal Cases review Commission, due to become operational during late 1996. Providing a brief guide to the provisions of the 1995 Act, this book is written in a style that will be useful for quick reference by practitioners. It is also intended to be use to students on degree and equivalent courses.
