              The Criminal Procedure Act 2011 is the most far-reaching reform of criminal procedure legislation since the Criminal Code Act 1893. The Act repeals most of the Summary Proceedings Act 1957 and the procedure sections of the Crimes Act 1961 and replaces them with a much more homoge...neous and coherent statute. It also amends a number of other statutes that affect the criminal process including the Bail Act 2000, the Juries Act 1981 and the Victims' Rights Act 2002. All criminal lawyers, whether they are prosecutors or defenders, need a thorough understanding of the changes to criminal procedure made by the Act. Written by specialist authors, Jeremy Finn, Don Mathias and Ron Mansfield, Criminal Procedure in New Zealand is designed to assist all criminal lawyers to come to such an understanding by providing a clear explanation of the procedures that need to be followed at every stage of the process from arrest through to trial. The book also contains invaluable information about sentencing, appeals, counsel's professional and ethical obligations, legal aid and the Public Defender Service, the use of audio-visual links, diversion, jury selection, jury decision-making and majority verdicts.

              Misuse of Drugs has for many years enjoyed a well-deserved reputation as the core reference on the laws of drug misuse and trafficking. Written by specialist author Dr Don Mathias, the nineteen chapters of Misuse of Drugs are a treatment of central topics in criminal law from the... perspective of drug offences. Indeed, the book guides the reader through all major aspects of this complex and multi-faceted area of the law, including: - the range of offences related to the possession, manufacture, supply, production, import, export, procurement, production, cultivation, or consumption of controlled drugs; - the court processes (including those relevant to bail applications, prevention of abuse of process, and sentencing) relevant to drug offences; - the application of the law of evidence, search and seizure, and surveillance to drug offences; important forensic issues such as the need for the prosecution to prove that substances involved in alleged offences are in fact controlled drugs; - the law related to forfeiture of proceeds of offending, proceeds of crime and money laundering. These features make the text essential reading for all criminal lawyers, and for judges, the police, probation officers, forensic scientists, students and members of the public interested in the law of drug misuse and trafficking.
