Emma Higgins, Solicitor at Robertson O’Gorman has co-authored the Second Edition of ‘Criminal Process in Queensland’.
The book covers topics such as proving offences, policing and police accountability, bail, pleas and double jeopardy, the trial process, considerations underlying sentence and appeals.
In the foreword of the text, Margaret McMurdo Ac, President of the Queensland Court of Appeal 1998-2017 said:
‘Its publication is timely because of the many chances to Queensland criminal procedural law in recent years. Whilst written for undergraduate law students, it would be a valuable addition to the library of legal practitioners and judicial officers at all levels. I regret that such a useful and accessible publication on the criminal law was not available when I was a student’.
All of the royalties made from the sale of this book will be donated to the Caxton Legal Centre, Queensland’s oldest and largest pro bono legal centre.
