‘Tackling Disclosure in the Criminal Courts – A Practitioner’s Guide’ by Narita Bahra QC & Don Ramble - To be published September 2019.
Don Ramble and Narita Bahra QC have co-authored a new book to provide practical guidance when considering issues of disclosure in criminal proceedings. It is aimed at both prosecution and defence practitioners. Disclosure issues can arise in any criminal case and in many guises, from the prosecution seeking an adverse inference from the defence’s failure to set out their case in the defence statement, to the defence applying for proceedings to be stayed as an abuse of process due to disclosure failings by the prosecution. It also includes checklists designed to help the reader ask the right questions when considering particular disclosure topics along with a number of precedents, pro-formas and sample documents to assist.
