If you are a practitioner with a busy and highly pressured practice in the magistrates' courts, you need Blackstone's Magistrates' Court Handbook...It will certainly save you a lot of precious time! (Phillip Taylor MBE, Richmond Green Chambers)
I shall want rarely to be without it. As a Resident Judge I am regularly dealing with the interface between the Crown Court and the Magistrates Court. I often find myself groping for information about the regular practice and procedure in the Magistrates Court. It has until now been difficult to find help consistently in any one place . . . Thank you for this gem of a book (HHJ Peter Collier)

An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers
If you are a practitioner with a busy and highly pressured practice in the magistrates' courts, you need `Blackstone's Magistrates' Court Handbook'. It covers those offences which you are most likely to experience frequently in court and therefore brilliant for helping you with those short notice cases which require your immediate and considered response.
Many of your colleagues will have the Handbook and if you have a copy already, do note that this is a brand new edition containing the latest up to date material, including rewritten and augmented sections of Abuse of Process and Costs. Particularly useful is the new art on the Youth Court, one of the most complex aspects of magistrates court procedure.
Thoughtfully designed for ease of use, it is almost instantly navigable with a logical system of icons, frequent headings, bullet points, flow charts and tables -- particularly on sentencing topics -- and Extensive Tables of Cases, Legislation and Secondary Legislation. As it comes in a handy pocket sized format with a (practically damage proof) plasticated cover, you can keep it ever to hand in your briefcase. If you don't have this latest edition now, buy it before the hordes descend.
It will certainly save you a lot of precious time!
